In November 2018, the Vimy Foundation opened the gates to a modern living memorial in honour of the centenary of the armistice of the First World War, adjacent to the Canadian National Vimy Memorial in France.
The Centennial Park features 100 Centennial Trees dedicated to Canadians. The repatriated Vimy Oaks commemorate the living spirit of those who fought and testify to the intimate relationship between people and nature even in the most tragic circumstances. The four rows of trees in the centre circle commemorate the four Canadian divisions that participated in the battle in 1917.
