UBC Remembers with Nov. 11 Services

As global events continue to heighten our sensitivity to war and its impact, UBC will hold its annual Remembrance Day Services on Nov. 11.

Services begin at 10:45 a.m. in the foyer of the War Memorial Gym. All members of the community are invited to attend the memorial, which commemorates the sacrifices of Canadians who have participated in wars over the last century.

About 350 faculty, staff, students and members of the off-campus community are expected to attend the services, held at the campus landmark built as a memorial to British Columbia’s war dead.

During the First World War, 697 UBC students saw active military service - 78 were killed. In the Second World War, 1,680 students enlisted - 169 lost their lives.
