32 Signal Regiment is pleased to announce that the 2016 Toronto Garrison Officers’ Ball is in support of the Vimy Foundation. Please take a moment to learn more about their good works.
The Vimy Foundation’s mission is to preserve and promote Canada’s First World War legacy, as symbolized with the victory at Vimy Ridge in April 1917. This momentous event is widely regarded as a defining moment in our history, where Canada first stepped forward onto the world stage.
That’s why the Foundation develops education programs and awareness building campaigns to help youth learn more about the sacrifices made by an entire generation 100 years ago – a time when Canada came of age. In 2017, Canada will be celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.
The crowning achievement of the Centennial celebrations will be the unveiling of the Vimy Visitor Education Centre at the Vimy Memorial in France – a project being spearheaded by the Vimy Foundation in partnership with the Government of Canada.
