Canadians who have served throughout our nation’s history and the more than 118,000 who made the ultimate sacrifice. Remembrance Day was first observed in 1919 throughout the British Commonwealth. It was originally called “Armistice Day” to commemorate armistice agreement that ended the First World War on Monday, November 11, 1918, at 11 a.m.—on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. In light of this, it is important to share that palliative care supports are available for veterans. Veterans Affairs Canada can supplement provincial, regional, and municipal programs and services through a combination of treatment benefits, VIP services, and long term care admission, with services designed to meet the unique needs of each client.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie, In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.
