Remembrance Day ceremonies have already begun across the country as Canadians join together to honour the country's fallen soldiers, veterans and those currently still serving in the military.
According to the Canadian Veterans website, almost 620,000 Canadian men and women served in World War One and more than 60,000 died. The last Canadian death to occur in World War One combat occurred precisely two minutes before the war was officially over.
Remembrance Day was originally known as 'Armistice Day,' and it was a day to commemorate the agreement which ended the First World War, which ended on November 11, 1918.
This Remembrance Day also holds extra significance as this year marks the 100th anniversary of John McCrae's famous poem, In Flanders Fields.
McCrea was a field surgeon in the Canadian artillery and wrote the poem during the Second Battle of Ypres in Belgium in 1915.
The team at Yo Sox hopes that all Canadians join us today to pay respect and honour to all soldiers.
Another way you can show your support today is to join the Yo Sox team and wear a pair of our Yo Sox 'Poppy' dress socks. These awesome socks feature the red poppy flower design, the Yo Sox logo above the heel and have a black base with red toe and heel.
