The City honours the Canadian men and women who served their country with ceremonies to mark Remembrance Day and D-Day as well as with war memorials and street signs.
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.
