Frequent deployments and the absence of a father, mother or sibling at milestone events are just the beginning of the unique challenges faced by those in a family that serve the nation. The impact of service is long lasting and can be felt within military families even after a serving member retires.

Through our work, we have deep knowledge of the unique needs of military families, and through the TPL Family & Children Fund, we provide grants ($5,000-$50,000) to programs that directly support and enhance the lives of children and youth in all regions of Canada.

The application window is now CLOSED.
