About the Nijmegen Marches
Canadian military contingents have participated in the Nijmegen Marches, a prestigious long-distance marching event held in the Netherlands, since 1952. While overseas, traditional ceremonies at the Vimy Ridge Memorial, Langemark German War Cemetery, Essex Farm Cemetery, and the Menin Gate Memorial to the Missing will provide opportunities for CAF members to commemorate Canada's legacy in Europe during the First World War. An additional ceremony will take place on the third day of the march at the Groesbeek Canadian War Cemetery, commemorating fallen Canadians from the Second World War.
