Building the Future, Informed by the Past
The Vimy Foundation is a leading voice on the First World War in Canada. Since 2006, the Foundation has reached hundreds of Canadian youth through hands-on educational programming, and led innovative commemorative initiatives including the construction of the Vimy Foundation Centennial Park and Vimy Visitors Education Centre in France.
At the Vimy Foundation we are dedicated to creating opportunities for young Canadians to learn about our First World War legacy, as symbolized with the victory at Vimy Ridge nearly 100 years ago.
That’s why we develop education programs to send youth from across the country to visit battlegrounds and memorials in France and Belgium and why we are spearheading the building of the new Education Centre at the site of the Vimy Memorial in France.
