From Vimy
to Juno

A digital retelling of Canada's wartime history

How to connect the stories of Canada’s past to upcoming, younger generations? This is the goal of the Juno Beach and Vimy Ridge Foundations—to engage and educate Canadians of all ages about Canada’s involvement in the First and Second World Wars.

Bridging Our Shared Histories Across Canada

Plank was honoured to help develop From Vimy To Juno—a multi-phased web project that explores the depth of Canada’s culture and identity through the lens of those who fought in and survived both World Wars.
