This week, we honour and remember our Canadian Veterans. At Avi Urban, our team values the legacy that these brave men and women pass on and we vow never to forget. Our showhomes will be closed on Friday, November 11th to ensure our sales team and customers have an opportunity to keep the memories of our Canadian Veterans alive.
Below are some commemorative ceremonies and events taking place across Calgary. These events will take place to recognize the achievements of our Veterans and honour those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Union Cemetery Tour: The 2011 Remembrance Day cemetery tour will be held at the Union Cemetery on November 11 from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. The tour will focus on the contribution of Calgary regiments to the great battles of the Boer War, World War I and World War II. No tour as the same, as each volunteer guide has their favorite stories to share. I attended this last year and found it a tremendous way to learn the stories of some of those who gave their lives for Canada and the principles for which it stands.
