Thanking Canada's veterans for answering the call to serve

November 10, 2015 - Federal Retirees

On Remembrance Day, the National Association of Federal Retirees recognizes the extraordinary efforts and sacrifices of Canada’s veterans and those who continue to serve. We also honour those who have given their lives serving Canadians and helping citizens of other nations.

At 11:00 AM EST on November 11, 2015, join us in pausing to mark the sacrifice and honour of Canada's veterans, military, RCMP and first responders.

On Remembrance Day in Ottawa, Col. Ian Gray (ret'd.) and Director with the National Association of Federal Retirees, will lay a wreath during the National Remembrance Ceremony on behalf of the Association’s members. The wreath is in honour of those who have served, those who continue to serve, and those who will serve in the future.

To all of our veterans and their families, thank you for answering the call to serve, and for making Canada and the world a better place to live.

The National Association of Federal Retirees is the largest national advocacy organization representing active and retired members of the federal public service, Canadian Armed Forces, Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), and retired federally-appointed judges, as well as their partners and survivors. With 185,000 members including more than 60,000 veterans and their families, the Association has a 50-year history of providing independent advocacy on issues affecting the financial security and health and well-being of our members and Canadians.
