  • Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada on Remembrance Day

    The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on Remembrance Day:

    “Today, let us remember and honour the many Canadians who have fought so bravely in defence of our country throughout our history, so that we might enjoy peace, freedom and democracy.

    “Our Canadian Armed Forces have earned tremendous respect for their remarkable contributions to promoting international peace and security. From coast to coast to coast, we pay special tribute to those who have given their lives in service. We also honour those Canadians who have worked to prevent the tragedies of war in international peacekeeping operations around the globe.

    “Members of our Armed Forces – past and present – routinely put their lives on the line for our country. They represent the very best of what it means to be Canadian.

    “We have an obligation to our country’s women and men in uniform, our veterans, and their families. As a government, we will honour this social covenant with the respect and gratitude it deserves.

    “I call on Canadians to join me in expressing our heartfelt gratitude to all those who have worked and fought so courageously to keep us safe. Today, and every day, we remain committed to ensuring they have nothing less than the care and support of a grateful nation.

    “We will Remember Them.”
