UBC Remembers

Since the opening of the War Memorial Gym in 1951, The University of British Columbia has held a ceremony commemorating November 11.

2021 marks the 71st year that the University of British Columbia has hosted a Remembrance Day ceremony. Following a virtual ceremony in 2020, UBC’s 2021 ceremony returns to War Memorial Gym. All UBC faculty, staff, students and community members are invited to attend—to honour and remember all those who served in times of war, military conflict and peace.
