On November 11, 1918, at 11 a.m., the First World War came to an end. It lasted over four years, killed or injured nearly 30 million military personnel and devastated some of the world’s biggest empires. It changed the future of people, countries and continents.
Canada’s contribution was significant, unprecedented and costly. The country came out proud and victorious, heading towards national autonomy within the British Commonwealth, while mourning the loss or injury of 250,000 Canadians.
Throughout November, we invite you to join us to REMEMBER.
The Canadian War Museum is the ideal place to learn more about Canada’s military history and remember Canadians’ service, sacrifice and loss.
How will you remember? Let us know on Facebook or on Twitter.
