MEDIA ADVISORY - Canadian War Museum to livestream Remembrance Day ceremony from Memorial Hall

OTTAWA, ON, Nov. 8, 2022 /CNW/ - The Canadian War Museum invites Canadians from across the country and around the world to participate in one of the most moving Remembrance Day ceremonies in Canada. On November 11, at exactly 11 a.m. (EST), sunlight enters through a single window in Memorial Hall, illuminating the headstone of Canada's Unknown Soldier. To allow as many Canadians as possible to experience this event, it will be streamed live on the War Museum's website, Facebook and Instagram pages, and Twitter feed.

Anyone wishing to watch the livestream can connect via one of the links below, beginning at 10:40 a.m. (EST) on November 11. Viewers will hear an explanation of the significance of the Hall, and will be able to watch as sunlight passes across the headstone, perfectly framing it at 11 a.m.

The livestream will remain available online until November 14 at noon (EST).

This year, we are pleased to welcome guests back in person into this very meaningful space, after two years of restrictions brought on by COVID-19. A limited number of free tickets will be available as of 9 a.m.
