Vimy Day

On Easter Monday April 9th, 1917, a cold windswept day with driving snow and sleet, Canadian forces made a major breakthrough in taking the strategic Vimy Ridge.

Vimy Day in Ottawa 2014 sees the annual Vimy commemoration being held at the Canadian War Museum at 1 pm. This is in lieu of the event at the National War Memorial presently undergoing renovation.
