In our Fathers’ Footsteps (IOFF) is a not-for-profit, Camino-inspired pilgrimage for the Canadian descendants of Second World War veterans of the Liberation of The Netherlands. Coinciding with the Liberation’s 75th+2 anniversary, In our Fathers’ Footsteps will take place in The Netherlands in September 2022. 

In our Fathers’ Footsteps is a spiritual, cultural, and educational experience that includes a 60 km walk totaling over different days along routes taken by the Canadian liberators—with heartfelt commemorative activities, and joyful 75th+2 Anniversary festivities.


In our Fathers’ Footsteps is both a reflective pilgrimage and a tribute to freedom, peace, and friendship in honour of these veterans whose descendants carry the remembrance torch on their behalf.
