Why Remember 11-11?

Remembrance Day, November 11, is a day of observance to honour and remember those soldiers who served and sacrificed for Canada. Building on the success of last year's painted wooden poppy project, the City's Parks, Forestry & Environment Division plans to continue to engage the community in a project with the goal of constructing a minimum of 1,111 poppies out of wildflower seed balls in an effort to also support our native pollinators. The seed balls will be created by residents and community groups at events throughout the year.

The poppy seed balls will be laid as a collective display November 9-11, 2019, at Celebration Square, before being used in our natural areas to promote the growth of our native wildflowers and provide habitat for pollinators.

Visit mississauga.ca/poppies for more information on this project.
