A Canadian First! Remembrance Day Service & Exhibit
For the first time in Canadian History, a regimental Remembrance Day service will be held at a Sikh place of worship – the Gurdwara. Gursikh Sabha Canada in partnership with the Sikh Heritage Museum of Canada is proud to host the 7th Toronto Regiment, Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery (RCA).
Two highlights of the event include the Ceremonial March of over 200 members of the Canadian Armed Forces and the service in addition to a historic exhibit – “War & Faith”.
The “War & Faith” exhibit through the Sikh Heritage Museum of Canada, aims to commemorate the remarkable, but largely forgotten role of faith during a soldier’s time in service and war. This exhibition introduces their story through remarkable written accounts of their experiences and achievements, rarely seen imagery, and extraordinary original artifacts.
Gursikh Sabha Canada is honoured to host this service and exhibition. “We felt it was important to make the commemorations of Remembrance Day more inclusive as we pay tribute to the Canadian Armed Forces, they are our fathers, brothers, mothers and sisters, neighbours … heroes, who made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of us and our Country”, says Gobinder S. Randhawa, President Gursikh Sabha Canada.
