The event brings together influential business and community leaders, distinguished military representatives and dignitaries to pay tribute to the military and Veteran community. From the moment a person enlists in the Canadian Armed Forces to the time they are released, their military service impacts every aspect of their life, including the lives of those closest to them – their family.
There are close to 640,000 Veterans across Canada and many live with the impact of service which may include mental health, physical injury, family struggles and/or challenges during military to civilian transition.
Children from military families experience double the rate of mental health issues as compared to children from civilian families. In addition to this, 68,000 regular force military families are posted in Canada, with more than half under the age of 35 and half with children.
Help us enable military families to participate in programming designed to aid in mental health support, spousal support, military child support and more.
