RCMP National Memorial Service

September 6, 2023
Regina, Saskatchewan

Media Advisory

Honouring our fallen members is of utmost importance to all of us in the RCMP. The most visible act of remembrance is the RCMP National Memorial Service, held annually on the second Sunday of September. It honours regular members, special constables, auxiliary constables and civilian members – all who lost their lives under different circumstances, but all in the line of duty.

This year the RCMP will add three fallen to the Honour Roll and Cenotaph; Cst. Shaelyn Yang, Cst. Vernon Myles Genaille and Cst. Harvinder Singh Dhami.

The RCMP National Memorial Service will be streamed on the RCMP Depot Division YouTube channel. You can watch live or any time after the event.

The RCMP National Memorial Parade is a closed event and not open to the general public.
