The Vimy Foundation

In 2006, The Vimy Foundation was formed with the mandate to preserve and promote Canada's First World War legacy as symbolized by the victory at Vimy Ridge in April 1917. Since then the Foundation has designed and distributed more than 100,000 unique Vimy pins and medals, produced high quality education resources for thousands of teachers and schools across Canada and been involved in more than 10,000 student "pilgrimages" to Vimy. As the centennial of Vimy Ridge approaches, the Foundation will play a leading role in building a state of the art Education Centre to be unveiled in France on April 9, 2017 on the grounds adjacent to the Canadian National Vimy Memorial. The Government of Canada recently committed $5 million to the project. The Vimy Foundation is committed to match that commitment through the generosity of Canadians.
