The National Day of Remembrance of the Battle of Vimy Ridge is held on April 9.  In recognition, flags at all City of Saskatoon facilities will be flown at half-mast to honour and remember those who fought.

The Battle of Vimy Ridge on April 9, 1917 was the first time that Canadians from coast to coast fought in a battle together against a common enemy and is considered by many to be a turning point for our country and the beginning of Canada’s march towards nationhood.
