Vimy Award Gala Dinner

November 3, 2017

Canadian War Museum – 1 Vimy Place, Ottawa, ON

Annually, the CDA Institute hosts the Vimy Award Gala Dinner at the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa, this year taking place on 3 November 2017. Each year this event brings together our men and woman in uniform (both serving and retired), multi-industry leaders, foreign and domestic security and defence representatives, academics, members of Canadian government, and Canadian citizens from coast to coast — all who wish to be part of this important event and witness the presentation of the Vimy Award.

In 1991, the Vimy Award was established to recognize Canadians who have made outstanding commitments to our national security and defence and towards preserving our democratic values, normally as a life-long achievement.

The CDA Institute is pleased to announce that

The Honourable William (Bill) C. Graham P.C. C.M. Q.C

has been selected as the recipient of the Vimy Award for 2017.
