Twice during the 20th Century, Canadian forces came to the aid of France to combat German aggression and to liberate millions of people in hopes of leaving the world a better and safer place. Though the Canadian forces reached more of their objectives than their British and American allies, the traditional narrative of “D-Day” only briefly covers the Canadian actions and often omits them altogether!

To re-visit this period in world history, Western Alumni has partnered with The National WWII Museum in America to offer D-Day: The Canadian Experience. Led by Dr. Marc Milner, Director of the Brigadier Milton F. Gregg VC Centre for the Study of War and Society at the University of New Brunswick (UNB) and expert battlefield guides, our unique itinerary covers the Canadian, British, and American sectors, and provides a full Allied perspective of the greatest invasion to take place in modern history. 

Featured sites include: Pegasus Bridge, Sword and Gold Beaches, Arromanches, Juno Beach, Bény-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery, Pointe de Hoc, Omaha Beach, Abbaye Ardennes and more

Accommodation at Le Grand Hotel Cabourg – MGallery by Sofitel.
