This Remembrance Day ceremony, which pays tribute to the more than 33 000 CP employees who served, is a private ceremony that will be live-streamed beginning at 10:45 am. The ceremony continues the company’s annual tradition of honouring veterans at CP’s Memorial Square, built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War. Though the ceremony is pared down, many important elements will still be incorporated, including the CP locomotive whistle sounding at 11:01 am local time, and across the network where safe to do so, to start a moment of silence.

Time: 10:45 am
Where: CP Head Office – Service is Virtual
Address: 7550 Ogden Dale Road SE, Calgary, AB
