November 8, 2022

Remembrance Day has been observed since the end of the First World War to remember armed forces members who have died in the line of duty. In most countries, Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November to recall the end of First World War hostilities. Hostilities formally ended "at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month" of 1918, in accordance with the armistice signed by representatives of Germany and the Entente between 5:12 and 5:20 that morning. The First World War officially ended with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on 28 June 1919.

Indigenous Veterans

November 8, 2021, marks National Aboriginal Veterans Day in Canada. On this day, we mark the important contributions and remember the many sacrifices made by First Nations, Inuit, and Métis in uniform.  They were far from home. Far from their communities and families. Yet when Canada called, they responded. They served.

Between World War I and World War II, Indigenous volunteers were often forced to overcome many challenges to serve in uniform, from learning a new language and adapting to cultural differences, to having to travel great distances from their remote communities just to enlist. Although exact statistics are difficult to determine, historians believe that between 7000 - 8000 Status Indians enlisted. That amount does not include the thousands of Inuit, Métis, and Non-Status Indians who volunteered and fought.

It's official, Don Clapp has retired!

It is with mixed feelings as we announced the retirement of one of our staff members. Don Clapp had been the Maintenance Supervisor for 33 1/2 years and decided that the time had come to retire.

Our office re-opened its door to the public.

Bear in mind, that as long as the world has not found a cure or a vaccine for COVID-19, we may have to adjust to a “new normal”, meaning a new way of living and going about our lives, work, and interactions with other people for a very long time.
