On November 11 honour the memory of Canadian veterans.

Pier 21 was the departure point for nearly all of Canada’s military personnel who served overseas in Europe in the Second World War. Discover what Pier 21 was like during the war and post-war years by exploring our Story Collection and reading firsthand accounts shared by Veterans, War Brides and British Evacuee Children.

Also visit our Virtual Wall of Service to find out how you can honour your loved one for their service to Canada by dedicating a brick on the Wall.

This Remembrance Day, take time to remember.
