True Patriot Love is committed to supporting the military and Veteran community, but we need your help.
There are more than 65,000 active military personnel and close to 650,000 Veterans across Canada, along with the family members who stand with them. Many active members live with challenges related to service such as frequent geographic relocation, regular separation from family, and an elevated risk of injury or worse. Veterans can also face challenges with mental health, rehabilitation and recovery from injury and integrating into civilian life following service.
The current global crisis can intensify pre-existing issues, and as military personnel begin to deploy to communities most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, they will undoubtedly face additional pressures.
An appeal from WWII hero Capt. Martin Maxwell
During times of peace, conflict or as we now contend with a global pandemic, we can always depend on the Armed Forces to stand up on behalf of all Canadians. Hear from WWII Veteran, Captain (Retired) Martin Maxwell, as he shares his story of being a soldier and Prisoner of War, and how we can continue to support those who have dedicated their lives to protecting us.

Below are a few of the programs True Patriot Love has funded, which will provide much-needed support during the pandemic and beyond.
Youth from military families have access to 24/7 confidential mental health and well-being support through the CAFKIDS Crisis Text Line powered by Kids Help Phone.
Military and Veteran families whose children live with anxiety, depression and other behavioural issues can access counselling over-the-phone and online.
Veterans use their skills attained in the military to provide crisis relief in local communities across Canada. In response to COVID-19, Team Rubicon Canada has launched an initiative promoting safe, individual acts of service across Canada.
