2021 In Memoriam: Remembering those we lost this year

·Associate Editor

Similar to the previous year, 2021 has been largely shaped by loss.

The year started on a hopeful note, with Canadians expecting to put the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic behind us. But as 2021 comes to a close, the country is grappling with another massive COVID-19 surge fuelled by the Omicron variant.

This year has tested Canadians' resilience as we've dealt with wildfires, heatwaves, rainstorms, blizzards, winter storms, a federal election and public health restrictions and limitations.

Amid the chaos, many notable people died this year and we're taking a look at the people we lost in 2021, including politicians, royals, celebrities and other pioneers.
