News release

As Remembrance Day approaches this year, the Town of Milton has launched a special feature on their Discover Milton webpage, which showcases all of the local streets named after Veterans, along with some additional information about who these individuals were, their significance to Milton, and what year the street was named.

Street signs that include a poppy are an easy way to identify a street named after a war Veteran in Milton. Each name was selected with purpose to honour those individuals.

Remembrance Day is a day for all Canadians to honour the individuals who sacrificed for our country. We encourage residents to observe a moment of silence on Thursday, Nov. 11, 2021, to pay respect to the many who have fallen in the service of their country and acknowledge the courage of those who continue to serve.

Please consider joining the Royal Canadian Legion #136 at their traditional Evergreen Cemetery Service on Nov. 11 at 10:45 a.m. Due to COVID-19, there is limited attendance.

To learn more about street naming in Milton, visit the Town’s website. To request a name for consideration in the naming of streets, please fill out and submit the name bank submission form.  Milton streets are named under a Council-approved policy.
