The 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge

LAC-TNA Vimy Ridge

A collaboration with Library and Archives Canada 

Over the next month, Library and Archives Canada and The National Archives will be shining a light on the role that the Canadian contingent played in the Battle of Vimy Ridge, as we commemorate the 100th anniversary of this First World War battle.

In a series of blog posts exploring the Battle of Vimy Ridge through our respective records, we will cover the following topics:

  • the composition of the Canadian Corps and the context leading up to Vimy
  • what happened during the battle itself
  • how the battle ended
  • memorialization following the battle
  • artistic representations of the battle

Lookout for the first blog in the series on 3 April, and every week until 21 April.

During that same period, Library and Archives Canada will be continuing the series First World War Centenary: Honouring Canada’s Victoria Cross Recipients, which looks at soldiers honoured for their actions during the battle.
