Veterans Welcome

Remembrance Day is about Service, Sacrifice and Acknowledgement. It has always been a day where Veterans of any conflict are foremost in the community mind. Despite Covid restrictions, any Veteran who wishes to attend this year’s ceremony is welcome. There is always a place for you.

If you are a Veteran with a medical exemption who plans to attend, we ask that you contact us using this form with your name and contact information and the nature of the exemption.  This will allow us to set aside appropriate, inclusive space for you.


As a result of the current surge in Covid-19 and with an abundance of caution, the NSVCC has determined the most prudent course of action is to repeat the format from last year’s ceremony.

We will once again have a limited attendance for veterans and dignitaries at the Cenotaph. The event will be live-streamed for the general public and a link to the stream will be posted on this site.

Safe & Healthy

Our goal is to keep our veterans safe, healthy, and included in these ceremonies. There is an attendance ceiling of 100 participants within the confines of the Cenotaph. This number will easily accommodate those veterans who wish to attend and for our official wreath layers.

Of course, we hope and trust that we will again, next year be able to return to a fully engaged community event. In the meantime, we’re holding the health and safety of our Veterans at the forefront of our planning.


Just as in wartime, many things can no longer be taken for granted. To ensure the health of everyone who attends the ceremony, we have some requests.

In keeping with the Provincial Health Officer’s advice of being fully vaccinated, we will be:

  • Adhering to 100% mask mandate policy within the venue.
  • No one will be allowed onto the venue without wearing a mask that fully covers the nose and mouth.
  • We realise that some Veterans may be unvaccinated due to specific allergies or other restrictions. We ask that you be willing to provide proof of your exemption, if requested.


If you are unvaccinated (or partially vaccinated and outside of the 14-day restrictions) and would like to attend the Veteran's Day Ceremonies, please fill out the information below. We'll be in touch to outline arrangements.

My grandfather died in World War I, when my mother was only 6-months old.  They never met. His service records were lost in a fire, although he was mentioned in Dispatches. I am the only relative in our family line who can stand for his memory.
The rest of the time, I'm a writer, coach, gardener, reader, knitter, grandmother, cat-mother, spouse and dabbler in all sorts of neuroscience.
