The Conference of Defence Associations Institute is proud to recognize Lieutenant-General J.O. Michel Maisonneuve as the 30th recipient of the Vimy Award at the next edition of the Vimy Gala taking place on November 5, 2021 at the Canadian War Museum.
The Vimy Gala, a black-tie evening reception and dinner, has consistently held its reputation of being the most exclusive defence and security recognition gala in Canada. The selection committee for the award includes the Chief justice of the Supreme Court, the Chief of the Defence Staff, and the Deputy Minister of Defence, who sit at our head tables at the event. Attended by the defence and security sector's most influential industry leaders, flag and general officers, and senior public servants. The evening is held during Remembrance Week to honour of our fallen heroes, and celebrate people in Canada who serve their country in a variety of ways, and whose daily actions are a tribute to those who have served before them.
