The City of Windsor has a proud tradition of gathering with local veterans throughout the year to pay respects to those who have fallen in military service as well as all those who continue to serve today. This year, the City partners once again with the Windsor Veterans Memorial Services Committee, local military representatives, Windsor Police Service and others for a meaningful Remembrance Day program.

Window Decals and City Hall Illumination:

As part of the City’s commemoration initiatives, large window decals honouring Remembrance Day with images from the Canadian War Museum will once again be displayed on the main floor of City Hall at 350 City Hall Square West for the month of November. From November 8 to 13, City Hall will also be illuminated in red each night in honour of our veterans.

South Walkerville Great War Street Sign Walking Tour:

Saturday, November 4, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. This tour will focus on the First World War (WWI) and reflect on the street names that are memorialized after battles where many of our local fallen soldiers gave their greatest sacrifice for our country. $5.50 per person. Advance ticket purchase is required. Contact Museum Windsor at 519-253-1812, or visit MuseumWindsor.ca.

Veterans Banner Project:

Everyone is encouraged to visit the Olde Riverside section of Wyandotte Street where street banners are hanging through the end of November 2023 showing the names, dates, and other commemorative information about some of the veterans with connections to our community. This project, now in its second year, has doubled the number of banners on display to 50 banners. The project is led by Marty Flanagan and is a partnership between the Olde Riverside Town Centre Business Improvement Association (BIA), the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 255, and ENWIN.

We Remember Their Stories:

From November 1 to 10,  previously recorded videos will be shared online highlighting local veterans reflecting on their service, stories, and comrades. Many of these videos were produced through the Veterans Memories Project created by the Windsor Historical Society. The recordings will be shared via the City of Windsor’s Facebook page and Mayor Dilkens’ Facebook page.

Remembrance Day Virtual Conversations:

On November 9 and 10, two virtual roundtable discussions (recorded in 2020 and 2021) will be rebroadcast on social media. For these memorable conversations, Mayor Dilkens sat down with a group of local veterans, officers, and military family members to reflect on the contributions of veterans, their stories, the impact of a life of service on families and loved ones, and the importance of Remembrance Day. The recordings will be shared once again via the City of Windsor’s Facebook page and Mayor Dilkens’ Facebook page.

Free Admission at Museum Windsor and Art Windsor-Essex (AWE):

Museum Windsor will offer free admission at the Chimczuk Museum and François Baby House on Saturday, November 11, in honour of Remembrance Day. The museum sites will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Art Windsor-Essex (AWE) will also offer free admission to the gallery that same day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Remembrance Day Parade:

Saturday, November 11. For the first time in several years, members of the HMCS Hunter and members of the Windsor Regiment (RCAC) will march from the Great Canadian Flag at Dieppe Gardens up Ouellette Avenue, and over to the cenotaph outside Windsor City Hall. This parade march will start out from Dieppe at approximately 10:30 a.m. Members of the public are invited to gather along the roadways and join in the parade as it passes by on route to City Hall.

Special Ceremony for Windsor Regiment:

Saturday, November 11. Immediately following the Remembrance Day Service, members of the Windsor Regiment will march over to Freedom Way to conduct a ceremony to hand over the unit’s old Guidon to the University of Windsor at the former Armouries (now the School of Creative Arts). All those attending the cenotaph service are invited to join the march and observe this special commemorative ceremony.
