Join True Patriot Love in May 2025 to follow along the path carved by the brave Canadian troops and show your gratitude to Canada’s military who sacrificed so much to liberate The Netherlands during the Second World War.

Learn from the thousands of examples of service, leadership, and heroism that stemmed from the largest and most devastating war in human history.

“Join us as we pay tribute to and visit the various sites and cemeteries where almost 8,000 of Canada’s sons rest for eternity. Stand in the footsteps of leaders and work through their incredibly difficult decisions under the most brutal circumstances. Join in the opening ceremonies of the Invictus Games, where wounded and injured Veterans inspire through sports. Meet our present-day Veterans, hear their stories and cheer their arrival into the arena of competition and be proud to say ‘I am Canadian.”
