On May 13, 2017, Valour Canada will honour The Royal Canadian Legion for their long standing, momentous work undertaken to assist and be the home of Veterans who have served Canada over the past century. With a nation-wide footprint supporting military history, youth development, and community, it is a fitting privilege for Valour Canada to present the Royal Canadian Legion with the General Sir Arthur Currie Award. The presentation will occur during our prestigious black-tie Gala at the BMO Centre in Calgary commencing at 6 pm. Our guest speaker is Mr. Rex Murphy, CBC’s The National reporter and a trusted voice on Canada’s vital role in positively impacting the world.
General Sir Arthur Currie was one of Canada's greatest soldiers and under his inspired leadership, the Canadians never lost a battle. His finest hour came during the final "100 Days" of the First World War leading the Canadians on the battlefields of France and Flanders. Currie gave high laurels to his soldiers: "I could write forever on the doings of the finest soldiers in the world...the Canadians." Sir Arthur Currie, 1933

When & Where
We imagine a time where Canadian citizens, having been inspired to take an interest in their history and to create a connection with their past, have in so doing, educated themselves on what it means to be a Canadian. They will embrace the interests, values and beliefs that we as a nation hold dear, by growing a deep respect, admiration and appreciation for the institutions that define our country within the world. They would remember and honour the individuals who have served and sacrificed so much in preserving and protecting it.
