Produced in partnership with the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa and co-authored by noted Historian, Dr. Tim Cook, this exhibition portrays the major role Canadians played in France in the spring of 1917, during the Battle of Vimy Ridge. This battle constitutes an important cornerstone in Canada’s history and a defining moment in affirming a Canadian identity for a young Nation. This exhibition is meant to allow visitors to better understand the significance of this historic battle for Canadians during the First World War, its careful preparation and outcomes.
