All Veterans have a story, and we at Veterans Voices of Canada would like to give them the opportunity to tell it through our professional video documentation. From WW2 to recent Veterans, we feel it is very important to document their story for history. Many RCMP Veterans have served in military capacity, and we would like to document their story along with their military brothers and sisters.

Resources for Canadian Veterans
As VETS Canada continues to grow, our goal is that VETS Canada is recognized throughout Canada for its expertise in seeking out and providing an initial response to homeless and at-risk veterans. With Ground Support Teams in every province, we will seek out and provide initial aid and comfort to homeless and at-risk vets. Dedicated and trained volunteers will have an excellent understanding of the support that government and other organizations can provide and will have cultivated effective working relationships with these groups that allow them to assist vets within their respective mandates.
Whether you are a Veteran, still-serving member of the Canadian Armed Forces or the RCMP, or a family member, we have services and benefits just for you.
On occasions like Remembrance Day, Canadians come together to honour the contributions and sacrifices of our many brave soldiers and Veterans. But, often, as the poppies worn over our hearts begin to disappear, so does the attention to the mental and physical war wounds inflicted on our nation’s sons and daughters.When these brave men and women are abroad, they are sustained and inspired by support from home. However, it is often the support they receive when they return home that is even more critical. Many of our soldiers are returning to a society that is ill-equipped to support them – a society that will never truly understand the stress of service and the atrocities of a war zone, nor the long-lasting impact on their families.
The Canadian Legacy Project was created because many of our Canadian veterans are living in poverty and do not have the basic necessities in food, clothing and shelter. The Canadian Legacy Project was developed to be an organization that advocates for our veterans and supports them by creating programs and events to help improve their everyday lives.
Your Royal Canadian Legion is committed to making a difference in the lives of Veterans and their families, providing essential services in our communities, and remembering the men and women who sacrificed for our country.
