Online Moment of Silence
Since November 11, 1918, Canadians have honoured their fallen soldiers with a moment of silence. But today, the tradition carries less relevance than it once did. Simply, young Canadians connect to social causes differently than previous generations. So to modernize the tradition for today’s digital audiences, we launched the Online Moment of Silence. The campaign started with a microsite where users were able to schedule a blank post to their social channels, all of which would be published on November 11, at 11am. Together, all these posts would create a whiteout effect in social feeds, contributing to a digital moment of silence alongside the one happening at Remembrance Day ceremonies across the country.
