Bring the Battle of Vimy Ridge to your class this year with the Vimy Foundation’s online educational resource Vimy 100 in the Classroom.
This free, fully accessible, bilingual resource has been designed for high school students across Canada and includes lesson plans, resources, and activities for use in a variety of classes.
Your students will be able to interpret Canada’s role in the First World War, as well as the significance of the Battle of Vimy Ridge and the Canadian National Vimy Memorial; setting these events within the contexts of the formation of Canada as a country, Canadian nationalism, and citizenship.
The Vimy 100 in the Classroom program encourages students to actively consider the war, and to discuss difficult questions, like the relationship between nationalism and war, in the form of debates, data collection, art, and mini research projects.

VIMY RIDGE VIP TOUR
Commemorative Centennial Tour
April 04-11, 2017
It is with pleasure that we at the Vimy Foundation present our specially designed tour, operated by Spirit of Remembrance Ltd, our official adult tour operator based in Europe. Part of the proceeds of this unique official tour will assist us to raise funds to send a group of young Canadians to Vimy, France in April 2017 for the Centenary commemorations. Staying in a breathtaking 17th century Chateau, your tour, led by General Rick Hillier (Ret’d), follows the trail of events which lead to the famous Battle of Vimy Ridge. Please join our tour and help us to help our youth perpetuate the memory of those who gave us the freedoms we enjoy today. The mission of the Vimy Foundation is to preserve and promote Canada’s First World War legacy as symbolized with the victory at Vimy Ridge in April 1917, a milestone where Canada came of age and was then recognised on the world stage.
The Vimy VIP Tour is now fully booked.
