We are Canada’s leading organization supporting military members, Veterans and their families.
Those who have and continue to serve in the Canadian military have volunteered to protect and defend the country and its citizen, which is arguably one of the most physically and emotionally challenging career paths. There are many sacrifices inherent to a military career and difficulties can often continue beyond service.
True Patriot Love raises awareness around the challenges of service and funds programs for servicemembers, Veterans and families that support their well-being, enable rehabilitation and recovery from injury, assist the children and spouses of those who serve, and promote re-integration into communities following service.
