Canadian Flag to be Flown at Half-Mast for Firefighters' National Memorial Day on Sunday

To mark Firefighters’ National Memorial Day, the Canadian flag at City Hall will be flown at half-mast on Sunday, September 8. The flag will be lowered to half-mast late Friday afternoon and raised to full mast on Monday morning. 

This national memorial day gives Canadians an opportunity each year to remember firefighters who have lost their lives while on the job.

The Canadian flag at the BC Legislative Building in Victoria and on all British Columbia government buildings and establishments across the province will also be flown at half-mast.
