It is our mission to inspire every Canadian to contribute to the resilience and well-being of our military and Veteran families.

Together, we can support Stronger Military Families.

True Patriot Love is a national charity that supports military families, funds community-based programs, and contributes to the Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research.

We are uniquely positioned to be able to understand the greatest needs of Canadian military families and then activate the resources required to deliver the most significant impact.

  • Our national perspective allows us to work toward ensuring that military and Veteran families receive the same level of support no matter where they live, while also allowing us to tailor our funding to the unique needs of the local community.
  • Our agility and flexibility allows us to fund promising community programs that are still in the proof-of-concept stage and, once success is proven, raise additional funds to take them national.
  • Our robust funding application process, which includes a Disbursement Advisory Committee consisting of experts from a variety of sectors, ensures that funding goes toward the programs that offer the most immediate, and most significant, impact.
  • Our partnership with the Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research allows us to leverage a comprehensive system of national research capabilities, which ensures we are funding the best, most innovative and most impactful research initiatives.
