At VETS Canada, we are committed to helping homeless and at-risk veterans reintegrate into civilian life.
Working within the community, VETS Canada members attempt to move veterans from the streets or shelters into affordable housing (if available). They also connect the veterans with needed health care, help them access benefits and services from other organizations, and support them in finding suitable employment. The volunteers stick with these veterans every step of the way and do everything possible to help them re-establish themselves. To do this, VETS Canada has a national Board of Directors composed of volunteers and has outreach across the country.
VETS Canada has evolved from just assisting homeless veterans to also providing support to those who are not necessarily homeless but who are “in crisis”. Whether that crisis is not being able to afford groceries or a hydro bill, or it’s an emotional/mental health crisis, VETS Canada is available to provide support.

Veteran Advance is operated by a team of Canadian Armed Forces current serving members, veterans and spouses. The inspiration for Veteran Advance came to me after a deployment – a period in my life where I briefly transitioned from the Army to the civilian world.
My thought process was born out of the reality that surrounded me at the time. The reality that often faces transitioning veterans who return to civilian life after releasing from the military, and the unique challenges that they may be presented with. Essentially I felt that there was a real need to connect, and that we could achieve this connection by supporting veteran-owned businesses.
By supporting businesses owned by current serving members, veterans and spouses, we can achieve our goal of building a mutually supportive economic community. Together we are stronger. Together we advance.

Annick has always been committed to helping people around her. She truly believes that each individual has within them, all the necessary resources to realise their full potential; sometimes only missing the spark and/or the inspiration that can light the fire for achievement.
In her toolbox, there is a wealth of life experience and training. Annick, however, specializes in Ericksonian and Conversational Hypnosis, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). These tools provide access to the unconscious, or, if you prefer, that part that does know! This solution-oriented approach can take you from present-state to desired-state!
I completed a tour in Rwanda in 94-95 and have a diagnosis for PTSD. My recovery has been slow and agonizing. A close family friend invited me fishing with him one time and I couldn't believe how in awe I was at the serenity and peace I was feeling. Everything in my head calmed and I was able to enjoy myself. I thought how can I give back and maybe help my fellow brothers and sisters. Take them fishing. I'm hoping that if they go on a trip with us, they might have the same effect that I did.
This project is intended to give Veterans with combat injuries, a chance to experience a guided fishing trip in a small group setting, at $0.00 for them.
