Spirit of Remembrance is both honoured and proud to be appointed as the Official Adult Tour Operator for the Vimy Foundation. In 2017, the Vimy Foundation will be marking the centennial anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, a milestone in Canada's rich history, where Canada came of age and was then recognized on the world stage. This commemoration will centre on April 9th, Vimy Day, 100 years since this iconic battle began.
Space is already very heavily booked throughout the area and even within France and Belgium, with over 40,000 visitors expected to attend this once in a lifetime event. Come visit with the Vimy Foundation and Spirit of Remembrance as the nation remembers this momentous occasion.
