Vimy Ridge Day, also known as National Day of Remembrance of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, is celebrated annually on April 9. This holiday honours the Canadian soldiers who fought at Vimy Ridge in northern France during the First World War. While this battle grants a moment of glory for Canada, it also signifies a terrible tragedy, with more than 10,000 soldiers injured or killed.

The Battle of Vimy Ridge, one of Canada’s most celebrated military victories, began at 5:30 am on April 9, 1917. It represented the first time that all four divisions of the Canadian Corps fought together, and they proved to be a formidable opponent. As a result of this battle, Canada seized Vimy Ridge from the German military, resulting in a massive territorial gain for the Allies. At Vimy Ridge, there now sits a monument to the soldiers lost on that Easter Monday in 1917.

How To Celebrate Vimy Ridge Day

Several museums, including the Canadian War Museum, hold events to celebrate Vimy Ridge Day. Many people visit war memorials or national cemeteries to pay their respects. People wear Vimy pins, decorated with an image of the Vimy Ridge memorial and four coloured bars representing the four divisions of the Canadian Corps. At schools, teachers may plan special lessons about the Battle of Vimy Ridge to educate students about #VimyRidge.
