UBC’s Ceremony for Remembrance Day, November 11, 2022
Since the opening of the War Memorial Gym in 1951, The University of British Columbia has held a ceremony commemorating November 11. This year, 2022 will mark seventy-two years that The University of British Columbia has hosted a Remembrance Day ceremony. This special ceremony is an opportunity for faculty, staff, students and members of the on and off-campus community to honour and remember all those who served in times of war, military conflict and peace.
This year’s ceremony will include participation and recognition of UBC’s Vancouver and Okanagan campuses and will feature short readings, remarks from special guests and musical performances by the UBC’s School of Music.
