This program recognizes the actions of young Canadians (14-17 years of age) who demonstrate outstanding service, positive contributions, notable deeds, bravery or leadership in their communities. Each year 20 students from across Canada travel to Vimy to participate in a week-long educational program focused on Canada’s tremendous First World War effort. The total cost is only $4,000 per student, which includes air travel, accommodations, and all activities in Belgium and France throughout Vimy Week.

Make a Donation and Support the Vimy Foundation

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 nearly 100 years ago. That’s why we develop education programs such as the Beaverbrook Vimy Prize, the Vimy Pilgrimage Award, and the Vimy Ridge Week at Encounters with Canada, to help youth learn more about the sacrifices made by an entire generation 100 years ago –a time when Canada became a nation.

The Vimy Foundation raises funds for its educational youth-oriented initiatives thanks to the generous contributions of private donors, corporate/municipal sponsors and participating schools, as well as Vimy Pilgrimage Medal and Vimy Pin sales.

The Foundation actively seeks your support. Donors can receive a tax benefit, since the Foundation is a registered charity under the Income Tax Act. We are able to issue tax receipts for any donation over $10, and the federal government has eliminated capital gains tax when you donate publicly listed securities to official charities like the Vimy Foundation.
