Remembrance Day across Quebec

11/11/2014 07:57 EST | Updated 01/11/2015 05:59 EST
Ceremonies to mark Remembrance Day originally began to commemorate the end of the Great War -- the First World War.

More than 650,000 men and women from Canada and Newfoundland served in the war.

66,000 died and 172,000 were wounded.

Ceremonies this year may be more poignant since 2014 marks 100 years since the start of the First World War.

It also falls just weeks after two Canadian servicemen were killed in separate attacks in this country.

Over the years, Remembrance Day has become the day where Canadians honour all military men and women who gave their lives in the service of their country.

Here is a list of some remembrance day events across Quebec:

- Where: McGill University, Lower Campus When: 10:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m.
