Vimy Ridge Leadership Experience

Arguably the most important battle to the formation of Canadian national identity, the Battle of Vimy Ridge occupies a special place in Canadian history—and for good reason. This leadership program explores the key decisions, leaders, and innovations that had a profound impact on not only the outcome of the First World War, but also Canada itself. This course explores pivotal events and judgments from the Canadian, British, and German perspective. By visiting historically significant and remarkably preserved locations on the Western Front battlefield in northern France, participants will develop a greater sense of how to refine their individual leadership and organizational goals through small group discussion and exploration.
