Vancouver, BC – The annual Vancouver Chinatown Remembrance Day ceremony will be reduced in size and activity this November 11, 2020 due to pandemic.
While the Chinatown community is committed to honouring Canada’s wartime sacrifices, especially in this 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, no official invitations shall been issued as seen in such ceremonies in years past.
Jointly organized by groups including the Chinese Canadian Military Museum Society, Chinese Benevolent Association, Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Vancouver, as well as S.U.C.C.E.S.S., the event is an opportunity for the community to honour the sacrifices of Chinese-Canadian military veterans as well as those of Chinese-Canadian pioneers.
A brief, wreath-laying presentation will take place at noon on Wednesday, November 11, 2020. Any attendees should adhere to health and safety protocols as directed by the Government of Canada and the Ministry of Health of British Columbia, including, but not limited to mask wearing and social distancing.
