  A Remembrance Day Email the town received to allow for a virtual Remembrance of our veterans this year

 This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on all of our daily lives. It has also changed the way we deliver the Department of National Defence’s National Veterans’ Week Speakers Program.

In order to keep Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) speakers and audience members safe, we developed a video series to meet the demand for speakers, while respecting public health guidelines.

 As we approach Veterans’ Week (Nov 5-11), the National Veterans’ Week Speakers Program (NVWSP) is proud to unveil its CAF speaker’s video series. These videos pay tribute to all veterans, past and present, who have served their country. They are geared toward various audiences and age levels, which can be viewed in lieu of an in-person presentation. 

 The CAF speaker videos will also be available for sharing on our social media channels, including Facebook (Canadian Armed Forces)

  and Twitter [@CanadianForces].

 We would also like to offer you some additional video resources that could be used in your Remembrance Day ceremony:   

 We hope you enjoy the CAF speaker videos we developed and check out our partners’ sites to help you prepare for your own Veterans’ Week / Remembrance Day activities.

 If you have any questions, please contact our national coordinator at 1-833-223-8322 or via email at: DNDRemembrance.SouvenirMDN@forces.gc.ca.
