On the 11th hour, on the 11th day and the 11th month, the guns of the First World War fell silent after millions lost their lives in what was considered the Great War.
The countries around the world vowed the atrocities of the Great War would not be felt again, however, 21 years later, the Second World War would see the deaths men, women and children.
Since WWII ended on Sept. 2, 1945, Canada has been involved in armed conflicts throughout the world including the Korean War, in Afghanistan and the many UN peacekeeping missions.
More than 100 years have the guns first fell silent at the end of World War One, nations across the country still stand together to remember and honour those who fought in armed conflicts.
