100th Commemoration of the Battle of Vimy Ridge

April 9, 2017 has been proclaimed Vimy Day in Truro by the Truro town council because of the heroic contribution made by hundreds of Nova Scotians to ensure success of this epic battle during this First World War battle.
All Legion members are encouraged to take part in the Parade or attend as spectators. Our goal is to recognize the sacrifice of the young men who fought in the battle of Vimy Ridge 100 years ago.



Canadians have a proud history of bravely serving in the cause of peace and freedom over the years. A name from Canada’s First World War military heritage that still stirs emotions is “Passchendaele.” On a muddy battlefield in northwest Belgium, Canadians overcame almost unimaginable hardships to win an impressive victory in the fall of 1917.
