The Battle of Vimy Ridge was one of the greatest Canadian victories during the First World War, but it came with tremendous sacrifice. The 100,000 Canadians who served there suffered more than 10,600 casualties, nearly 3,600 of which were fatal.

On Monday, April 9, 2018— on Vimy Ridge Day— the Government of Canada held an official commemorative ceremony at the Canadian National Vimy Memorial in Givenchy-en-Gohelle, France, to pay tribute to the bravery and courage of those who took part in the historical battle.

On behalf of the Government of Canada, Mr. John Desrosiers, Director, European Operations, joined M. Jean-François Raffy, sous-préfet of Lens and representative of the French Republic; members of the Canadian Armed Forces based in Europe; Veterans; military representatives from other countries; and Canadian and French citizens to honour the service and sacrifices made by Canadians in 1917 over a hundred years ago.
