“Since the opening of the War Memorial Gym in 1951, The University of British Columbia has held a ceremony commemorating November 11. This year, 2016 will mark sixty-five years that The University of British Columbia has hosted a Remembrance Day ceremony. This special ceremony is an opportunity for faculty, staff, students and members of the on and off-campus community to honour and remember all those who served in times of war, military conflict and peace.
This year, the Remembrance Day Ceremony at UBC will be held on Friday, November 11 and will include short readings, remarks from special guests and musical performances by the UBC Opera Ensemble.
Everyone is welcome to attend this annual ceremony – doors to the War Memorial Gym will open at 10:00 a.m. and the ceremony will commence at 10:45 a.m.
Light refreshments will be served after the ceremony and all are welcome to stay.”
