The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents of a number of rolling street closures and traffic delays that will be in place across the region on Friday, Nov. 11 to facilitate Remembrance Day parades.

Local ceremonies will be taking place to honour our veterans and those still serving with the Canadian Armed Forces.

Traffic delays will be in place at the following locations:

  • Province House, Halifax (10 a.m. to noon). The Princess Louise Fusilliers Remembrance Day parade will begin at the Maritime Museum, proceed north on Lower Water Street, west on Duke Street and then south on Hollis Street where they will stop for a ceremony at Province House. Following the ceremony, the parade will proceed south on Hollis Street, then turn east on Sackville Street, north on Lower Water Street before ending on Prince Street.
  • Cenotaph at Sackville Heritage Park, Sackville (10:40 a.m. to noon). The parade will begin at the Cobequid Road Transit Terminal, proceed down Memory Lane to the Cenotaph and then return.
  • Cenotaph at Earl Francis Spryfield Memorial Royal Canadian Legion, Spryfield (10:40 a.m. to 11 a.m.). The parade will begin at Shoppers Drug Mark at 315 Herring Cove Road, travel south on Herring Cove Road, west on Sussex Street to the Earl Francis Spryfield Memorial Royal Canadian Legion Hall at 7 Sussex Street.

Some events include marching back to the point of departure following the ceremony. There may also be processions not included here for events being held in other areas of the municipality. Residents are encouraged to contact their local Royal Canadian Legion or visit their website to learn more.

Halifax Regional Police will be on site to escort the parades and direct traffic in the surrounding areas. Motorists are advised to obey officers on the street and watch for increased pedestrian volumes throughout the morning. Given the anticipated traffic delays, those attending Remembrance Day ceremonies are encouraged to allocate extra time in their travel plans to allow for parking.
