Commemorations in North Vancouver

As every year, Consul General of France, Philippe Sutter, will take part in the Remembrance Day commemorations in North Vancouver, organized by North Shore Veterans’ Council Canada, as well as the one at Ecole internationale français Cousteau in North Vancouver.

Due to COVID-19 and gathering restrictions, we invited you to follow the live broadcast.

Remembrance Day embodies the special bond there is between France and Canada. More than ever, lets we forget.

On November 6, we heard about the passing of Veteran George Chow. Read Consul General’s, Philippe Sutter, tribute.
