The 2020 Remembrance Day ceremony held today in Métis-sur-Mer with the theme Sacrifices and Accomplishments had a decidedly different flavour than in past years. COVID prevention measures limited the usually large audience.
Join us to find out about the design of the monument to be built in Métis to honour the region’s veterans, serving Canadian Armed Forces members, and emergency responders. See photos and other memorabilia, and hear the voices of Metisites,
We’re happy to announce that Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) has approved our application for funding for a lasting tribute to those who have served and are serving our country, as well as to those who support(ed) people on the front lines and in disaster zones. Metis recognizes their service every year with a week-long calendar of Remembrance events.
How can you enjoy Canada Day Celebrations this year while respecting government regulations? Our colourful and tasty answer is a Canada Day Parade of Homes, followed by a free delicious summer treat for the kids – their choice of gelato, sorbet or ice cream from Pierre-Olivier Ferry’s Atelier culinaire with its mouth-watering Les Boules Glacées de Métis-sur-Mer. That’s as long as you participate, of course, and while supplies last (if they run out, kids will get another gift of appreciation).
