Remembrance Day 2022

Today, members of Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 88 joined Mayor Kristin Murray to honour our veterans and in celebration of the Poppy Campaign, which kicks-off Friday.

Each year, Canadians wear a Poppy as a visual pledge to honour Canada’s Veterans and remember those who sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today.

The Poppy should be worn during the Remembrance period from Friday, October 28 to November 11, 2022. The Poppy should be worn on the left side, over the heart. When you remove a Poppy, it should be disposed of respectfully. You may choose to remove your Poppy at the conclusion of our local Remembrance Day ceremonies and place it on a wreath as a sign of respect.

Remembrance Day ceremonies will be held at the cenotaph in Hollinger Park and in South Porcupine at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 287. In Timmins, the ceremony begins just before 11:00 a.m. The public are asked to be in place by 10:45a. In South Porcupine, the public can watch from Legion Drive and are asked to be in place by 10:30 a.m.
If you're not attending a ceremony, you can still observe a moment of silence at 11:00 a.m. in honour of our veterans and service members. Watch for Poppy boxes around the city. All donations support our local Royal Canadian Legions.
