Discover the Canadian National Vimy Memorial, an iconic symbol of remembrance and a tribute to all Canadians who served during the First World War. During your visit, explore the preserved Grange tunnel and front line trenches, read the names of 11,285 Canadians killed in France whose final resting place was unknown, honour the fallen in beautifully maintained cemeteries and take time to reflect on the sacrifices that give meaning to the memorial’s magnificent sculptures and architecture.
