Canadian Great War Project Canadian Great War Project


Between 1914 and 1918, Canada participated in the most devastating war mankind has known. The Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) fought in France and Flanders, in battles at Ypres, Passchendaele, the Somme, Hill 70, Mount Sorrel, and Vimy Ridge. In 1918 the Canadian contingent spearheaded the drive to end the war, fighting from Amiens and Arras in Northern France, through Cambrai and on to Mons in Belgium, which the Canadians secured on 11 November, 1918.

The Canadian Great War Project is intended to promote interest in Canada’s participation in World War 1 and to research the Canadians who participated in it. The site has become a collaborative effort among those interested in researching Canada and the Great War, and has collected the records of 648,390 people to date.
