Remembrance Day 2020
With Remembrance Day upon us, we are taking a moment to reflect on our country’s history and the contributions of the brave Canadians who have served and continue to serve our nation.
At Teranet, we are proud to be part of an amazing, multicultural nation that stands behind its forces. A nation that continues to recognize and honour the immense contribution Canadian forces have made to our country and beyond.
Today, we are honouring these brave men and women and proudly donning the poppy which is a symbol of respect and hope. A flower that reminds us of nature’s ability to bounce back from war and conflict.
While, celebrations may look different this year, due to COVID-19, there are still a number of ways we can show our gratitude.
For instance, the City of Vancouver’s Remembrance Day ceremony is still going ahead but in a slightly different manner. People are being advised to ‘remember in place’ at home and watch the public service online.
Similarly, according to Narcity, in Ottawa, poppies are still being distributed but they’re being placed separately and members are wearing masks and maintaining the advised two metres distance.
Veteran Affairs Canada shares resources that can help you learn more about our history, events taking place across the nation, and different ways in which you can remember:
Though things may be looking different this year, our gratitude remains the same.
