Pilgrimages of Remembrance

Every two years, thanks to the generosity of Foundation donors, Canadians travel to battlefields, military cemeteries, museums, and memorial services in France, Belgium and the Netherlands. Those who participate in the Foundation’s Pilgrimage spend two weeks taking in the devastation of First World War 1 trenches and the beaches of Normandy. 

They participate in ceremonies of Remembrance at cemeteries where many young Canadians found their final resting place, and learn about Canada’s military history, heritage and the contributions of our Veterans.
