To protect the health of our local veterans and community members, there will be no in-person, public ceremony at the Memorial Square Cenotaph in downtown Barrie.

Laying of the wreaths is typically a significant part of the Remembrance Day Ceremony. Members of the community, local organizations, or businesses that would like to place a wreath at the Memorial Square cenotaph are asked to make arrangements in advance with the Legion.
Wreaths can also be dropped off at the Legion Hall (410 St. Vincent Street, driveway entrance off of Ferris Lane) between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. on November 10 or prior to 9 a.m. on November 11. Following the ceremony, the wreaths will be respectfully placed at the Memorial Square Cenotaph in downtown Barrie and anyone wishing to keep their wreath can pick it up from the downtown Cenotaph on November 12.
