OTTAWA, ON, 27 OCTOBER 2023 – It is The Royal Canadian Legion that organizes the National Remembrance Day ceremony in Ottawa, as well as many others across our country.
To help clear any confusion created by incomplete or inaccurate information being circulated, it is critical to understand the following:
“Prayer will remain an important part of Remembrance Day ceremonies organized by the Legion, including the one at the National War Memorial. While military chaplains are required to modify their language, that decision does not eliminate the inclusion of prayer to God or a higher power by other spiritual representatives at Legion ceremonies.”
