Welcome to Canada !

Inaugurated in 1936, the memorial built in honor of Canadian soldiers killed during the First World War became the symbol of the birth of this nation.

Dominating the mining basin, Vimy Ridge was an essential position of the German defense. It is on this high point that Canada is building a monumental ensemble in memory of its 66,000 fallen soldiers.
Surrounded by a 110-hectare park, a gift from France to Canada, the memorial commemorates the battle of April 9, 1917, during which the Canadians took over the ridge. This victory is a milestone in the history of Canada. Near the monument, it is possible to visit reconstructed trenches and part of the underground used during the battle. An interpretation center provides essential reading keys to capture Canadian involvement in the conflict.
