Toronto Remembers the Wars

The City honours the past:

  • Every Remembrance Day on November 11, we acknowledge the courage and sacrifice of those who served their country.
  • Each June 6, the City of Toronto honours the Canadian men and women who took part in the Allied forces' invasion of Normandy, France on June 6, 1944.
  • Communities across Toronto have a long tradition of honouring the soldiers who fought for our freedom. Each of the former cities, as well as some earlier villages, often had their own memorial or cenotaph. 
  • Starting in fall 2008, a number of street signs across Toronto were unveiled that pay tribute to fallen soldiers from Toronto.
