Remembrance Day, did you know?

Remembrance Day in Canada and Veterans Day in the United States are celebrated annually in November to honour the many individuals who have served in each country’s military. That figure is a sizeable one in the United States, as data from the Department of Veterans Affairs indicates there were around 19 million U.S. military veterans in 2021.

Population estimates indicate that Canada has a little more than one-tenth the total population of its immediate neighbour to the south, so the number of living Canadian veterans is significantly smaller than it is in the U.S. However, analysis of Veterans Affairs Canada data estimates there were just under 618,000 veterans of Canada’s military in 2021.
