History

In 2006, UBC’s Okanagan campus held its first Remembrance Day ceremony, which also marked the 50th Anniversary of the First United Nations Peacekeeping Force. Every year is an important year to honour veterans and their service as they continue in the international pursuit of peace.

Since the opening of the War Memorial Gym in 1951, the University of British Columbia in Vancouver has held an annual ceremony commemorating November 11. For historical information on the opening of the Gym and some archival photos of earlier Remembrance Day ceremonies, visit the UBC Special Collections’ website.
