After the service, there will be a ceremonial march down University Avenue along Main Street to the War Memorial in front of the Wolfville Post Office. There, a wreath-laying ceremony will take place at approximately 11:30 a.m.

Before the November 11 event, wreaths will also be placed at the cenotaph in front of Acadia’s War Memorial Building. You are welcome to view the memorial and remember the Acadia community members who made the ultimate sacrifice.

November 5 – 11 is Veterans' Week. Service, Courage and Sacrifice – At home, around the world and across generations.

November 8 is Indigenous Veterans Day. The First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people of Canada have a long and proud tradition of military service to our country.

November 11 is Remembrance Day. A time to honour those who have served and continue to serve to defend peace.
