Multiple police services have come to Toronto from across the Ontario to remember fallen officers.

A Ceremony of Remembrance was held in the area of Queen’s Park Circle on Sunday morning.

All 266 names of the police officers killed in the line of duty were be read aloud by recruits from the Ontario Police College.

They then marched across Queen’s Park Crescent to arrive at the steps of the Legislature and the Police Memorial.

The CN Tower will also be lit up in blue on Sunday to honour police officers in Ontario.

York police have also gathered in Richmond Hill to honour their fallen officers.

“This annual memorial is a time to stop and take a moment to reflect on the ultimate sacrifice that our officers have made,” said a tweet from York police.
