Dear C&E Family:

I hope you’re all keeping well during these trying times.

Although it is disappointing that we are not in the Netherlands as planned, there are still many ways we can safely commemorate this very important anniversary.

Through the Veterans Affairs Canada social media channels, a virtual commemorative ceremony will be broadcast on May 8, 2020. The ceremony will start at 12:45 p.m. EDT and will last approximately 30 minutes. I invite you to check it out!

The ceremony will be broadcast on the Canada Remembers Facebook page:

If you ‘like’ the page, you will receive a reminder on May 8 that the event is happening and, in the meantime, you can enjoy the many posts and videos about the Netherlands that have already been shared.

I hope that you enjoy the ceremony and realize how much Canada appreciates the service and sacrifices of our Veterans.
