Donate Seats to Veterans and Serving CAF Members.

We believe, an experience like the Vimy Gala, is best shared. 

Our Donated Seats Program allows Military Veterans and serving members of CAF, who typically would not be in a position to attend, to join the Gala celebrations as guests of one of our Table Sponsors. 

Experiences and memories are created thanks to those companies who donate a select number of seats from their table.

With your sponsorship that has the added value benefit of a complimentary table we do encourage you to contact us and find out more on how you can play an important role in welcoming these special guests to the Vimy Gala for an evening to remember.

The Vimy Gala is a black-tie cocktail and dinner held annually since 1991 in Ottawa to honour Canada’s fallen heroes in the context of the Remembrance Day activities held across the country. The Gala brings together active and retired members of the Canadian Armed Forces alongside future officers currently enrolled at the Royal Military Colleges, as well as industry and government leaders and international guests of honour. It will be an evening to remember and to reflect upon the sacrifices many have made for our nation and for the sake of building a more just and prosperous world. It is also a celebration of Canada and men and women who serve.

The Gala is also an opportunity for defence professionals to recognize outstanding individuals in our community, whose courage, vision, and achievements inspire us all. To that end, we present the Vimy Award to a Canadian who has made an outstanding, lifelong contribution to our national security and defence and to preserving our democratic values. Past recipients include Her Excellency Adrianne Clarkson, the Honourable BIll Graham, General Rick Hillier, and the Right Honourable Joe Clark. The most recent laureate, LGen Christine Whitecross (2018) sat on the Selection Committee alongside Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Richard Wagner and Chief of Defence Staff Jonathan Vance.
