VALOUR CANADA

Valour Canada is a not-for-profit organization that educates young Canadians about our shared military heritage by developing and providing learning opportunities designed to foster a deeper understanding of who we are as individuals, citizens, and as a nation.

Engaging, responsive, dynamic, meaningful, and transformative, are all words that describe our pedagogical practice, and alongside our stakeholders we continuously aim to integrate these aspects with our programming.

“I make a point of taking my Grade 11 students to Valour’s programming every year . . . participating in the program heightens their level of engagement and really helps to create a meaningful connection for them between Canada’s military, past and present.  I have seen first-hand how it opens students’ eyes to a different aspect of citizenship and service to our country, something I cannot create by myself in my classroom.”             – Calgary Teacher

VIRTUAL REALITY

Valour Canada has embarked on a project to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Canada’s involvement in D-Day and the subsequent Battle of Normandy.

We bring Canadian battlefields to Canadians with the help of new 360⁰, virtual reality technologies.
