Although capacity limits allow the public to attend Remembrance Day ceremonies, the City of Toronto is livestreaming its City Hall event for those who are unable to attend.
The ceremony will begin at 10:45 am, with the livestream coming online via the city’s YouTube channel at 10:55 am on Thursday morning.
The event will begin with a land acknowledgement, followed by the singing of O Canada, and two minutes of silence. There will also be a reading of In Flanders Fields, a performance on the bagpipe and bugle, and wreath-laying.
In honour of Remembrance Day and the poppy’s 100th anniversary, the Toronto sign has been given a temporary poppy and will be lit red.
