In memory of the 3,598 Canadians killed in action at Vimy Ridge

The Battle of Vimy Ridge was the first occasion on which all four divisions of the Canadian Expeditionary Force participated in a battle as a cohesive formation, and it became a Canadian national symbol of achievement and sacrifice.

Canadian valour and bravery brought about a fantastic victory, not only for Canadians but for the entire Allied force.
