11 Days of Remembrance

11daysofremembrance

 Each day, from November 1 to November 11, 2021, OPERATION REMEMBRANCE will release a short educational video created by students from participating schools across Canada.


The 11 Days of Remembrance is a media initiative to encourage Canadian students to honour our Veterans. Students have created short documentaries that tell stories of sacrifices made during times of conflict. 

This program is supported by The Royal Canadian Legion and Veterans Affairs Canada.

A short video will be released on YouTube and Instagram each day, concluding on 11 November. Please refer to the detailed program which describes what topics are featured this year and which schools took up the challenge.
