Remembrance Day ceremonies to be held at different location this year

Remembrance Day Ceremonies will be held in a different location this year due to the ongoing construction of a parkade and condominium development next to Veterans Plaza and the Cenotaph in front of City Hall.

This year, the event will begin with the assembling of parade participants and spectators at the Prince George Conference and Civic Centre starting at 9:15 a.m. This portion of the event will feature the opening ceremony, songs, and the recitation of In Flanders Fields.

The parade will then assemble outside along Canada Games Way and proceed at 10:45 a.m. to a temporary cenotaph erected on Seventh Avenue between Dominion and Brunswick Streets near the Terry Fox statue for the outdoor ceremony.

Spectators are encouraged to view the ceremony from Community Foundation Park next to the Four Seasons Leisure Pool and the north side of Seventh Avenue

The outdoor ceremony will feature:

  • Playing of Last Post
  • Singing of O Canada
  • Two Minutes of Silence
  • Prayers
  • Placing of Official Wreaths
  • Flyover by an RCAF Hawk 419 Squadron aircraft

Following the outdoor ceremony, the parade will turn back up Seventh Avenue and turn north on Quebec Street, west onto Fifth Avenue, south onto Brunswick back to Ninth Avenue, and then east and back to Canada Games Plaza.

Refreshments will be available at the Royal Canadian Legion (1116 Sixth Avenue).
