Global Coverage of Remembrance Day Ceremonies
We want to share some of our national initiatives across TV, online and social media to commemorate Remembrance Day this year. All television channels, radio stations, online and social media platforms will pause activity for two minutes at 11:00 a.m. local time out of respect for the generations of men and women who have proudly served and continue to serve Canada – Lest We Forget.
We will be airing Canada Remembers, anchored by Global National’s Dawna Friesen. It will feature special coverage of the annual Remembrance Day service from the National War Memorial in Ottawa.

The Canada Remembers broadcast will air on a one-hour delayed basis on Global Winnipeg, Global Regina and Global Saskatoon beginning at 10:30 a.m. Central Time.
In addition, Global will provide commercial-free coverage of local Remembrance Day services from Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver on Saturday, Nov. 11.
