On March 11, Trudeau invites all Canadians to join together in honouring the memory of those lost to the virus and the people they left behind.

"Last week we received nearly a million doses of COVID-19 vaccines and this week, we're getting another million", said the Prime Minister.

Before the end of the month, Guyana will receive thousands of doses more of vaccines through the COVAX facility and the CARICOM/ African Union agreement.

According to the survey, 66 per cent of respondents said that they would get a vaccine as soon as it is possible, an increase when compared to a survey in November where only 40 per cent of respondents said they would get a vaccine when it was available.

"We also take this opportunity to thank our front line workers who have been working tirelessly every single day to keep us safe and healthy". Both provided the same statement, basically, with Tam speaking in English and Njoo in French.

One year after Canada's first COVID-19 death in Vancouver, Trudeau proclaims March 11 a national day of observance

"Since the great wars of the 20th century, there is a sentence we often evoke, and it's a sentence that we can bring back for those that we lost this year during the pandemic: We will remember them".

He adds COVID-19 has infected over 864, 000 other Canadians and had an impact on how we work, learn and connect with others, as well as live our daily lives.

Trudeau chose to make Thursday a national day of remembrance because it was the one-year anniversary of the World Health Organization declaring COVID-19 a global pandemic.

There were just over 3,200 new cases of the infection reported Wednesday nationwide, and 31 new deaths.

For persons 60 years and over, they can visit health centres or immunization centres in their area and present their national identification card before being administered the vaccine.
