Remembrance Day

​Everyone is invited to attend the Company's annual Remembrance Day ceremony at the Ogden Memorial  

Canadian Pacific continues to pay tribute to the more than 33,000 CP employees who served in the last century's two world wars . This tradition of service continues, with Canadian and American employees currently listed as reservists.

These brave men and women will be honoured at CP's Remembrance and Veteran's Day ceremony on November 11 starting at 10:30 am MT. The ceremony is open ​to the public and all are welcome to attend.

The ceremony will be held at CP's Head Office, located at Calgary's Ogden Yard. The location for the ceremony will be at CP's new Memorial Square, which was built last year in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War.

CP Memorial Square is located adjacent to the top parking lot by the 69th Ave SE and Ogden Dale Road SE entrance.

During the ceremony CP executives, employees, CP Police Service officers, CP pensioners, military representatives including members of the Lord Strathcona's Horse Royal Canadians, and the public will observe one minute of silence at 11:00 local time. All CP trains and engines across Canada and the United States will sound their whistles at 11:01 local time, in tribute to the men and women who have served their country.

In Canada, CP moves Canadian Forces' equipment and is one of Canada's most supportive employers of primary Reserve Force personnel. In the United States, CP is a proud partner of the US Army PaYS program, which recruits soldiers interested in obtaining a quality civilian job following service to their country. ​
