Annual Educational Trip – Vimy

2017 will not only mark Canada’s 150th birthday but also the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge – an important event in our country’s military history. In 1917, Canadian troops were victorious in this famed battle which was a critical triumph in the eventual success of WWI and a defining moment for the Canadian military.

On June 24-29, 2017 True Patriot Love will travel to the battle sites and memorials of WWI and WWII in northern France to pay tribute to the fallen who have sacrificed so much. Individuals who have made this trip in the past often refer to it as a ‘pilgrimage’ because it’s a journey of special significance for Canadians. We will be guided through defining moments for our nation by Dr. Terry Copp, renowned military historian at Wilfrid Laurier University and special guest General (ret’d) Rick Hillier, former Chief of Defence Staff for the Canadian Armed Forces.

If you are interested in joining this incredible experience in 2017, please contact Kristina Schreiber, Director of Expeditions and Events for the True Patriot Love Foundation (kschreiber@truepatriotlove.com). Spaces on this trip are very limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis.
