Observed on Sunday closest to November 11 to recall the end of World War I and honour the veterans of both World Wars.

Remembrance Day is commemorated on November 11th each year and marks the end of World War I in 1918.

The intention of the day is to remember the fallen on both sides in the 'Great War'.

In the UK, the official commemoration was moved to the Sunday closest to November in 11th 1939, to avoid any disruption to production in factories supporting the war effort. This Sunday observance has remained since, though November 11th may also be marked with a moment of silence at 11am.

As Canada and The United Kingdom observed its very first Remembrance Day, Madame Anna Guérin, a teacher from France, had the idea to distribute poppies in order to raise money for veterans in need. The practice caught on quickly and has continued since.
