Since the beginning of the month, poppies have adorned the left lapels of Canadians and on Remembrance Day, through ceremonies, memorials, and services, veterans will be honoured across the country. There are several events taking place around Metro Vancouver, as there have been for decades, with the cenotaph at Victory Square being one of the main ceremony locations in the city.

Searching the City of Vancouver Archives this morning, I found some photographs of Remembrance Day at Victory Square from services throughout the past 80 years:
