Remembrance Day - Lean in Canada

Remembrance Day is about recognizing and remembering the sacrifices made by those selfless, patriotic individuals who have fallen to protect our country, and those who continue to do so. While we honour all those who serve, there have been many remarkable Canadian women whose contributions during the war stood out.

Famous Canadian Women Famous Firsts highlights Canadian women who have served as military leaders.

My Grandmother’s Wartime Diary is a compilation of wartime stories that Veteran’s Affairs Canada employees contributed from their mothers, grandmothers and friends of their experiences during the Second World War, both at home and in wartime service.

Thank you to all of our veterans, women and men, for all you do and have done to keep Canada glorious and free. #RemembranceDay #LestWeForget
