of Canadian veterans reside in Quebec
Experience difficulty in their transition to civilian life
The Quebec Veterans Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to organizations that aim to help the veterans residing in Quebec in their transition to civilian life. Our focus currently includes veterans suffering from PTSD and/or other operational stress injuries, homelessness, unemployment, and veterans in long-term care.
In constant evolution, the Quebec Veterans Foundation transformed itself in 2017 to optimize its direct impact with the largest possible number of veterans living in Quebec.
By preserving and solidifying its historic foundations at Ste. Anne’s Hospital, our organization is spreading its wings and participating in promising programs that meet the needs of veterans suffering from Operational Stress Injuries (OSI), such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
To support programs that positively impact the quality of life for veterans experiencing difficulties in transitioning to civilian life.
The men and women who have served their country should be given every opportunity to live with pride and dignity and become positive contributors to their communities in a civilian context.
Board of Directors
The Quebec Veterans Foundation fully embraces its new role to help all veterans in Quebec. We are proud to have extended our mission to include programming and to reach more veterans who are experiencing difficulties, whether it be with homelessness, suffering from PTSD, or having difficulties in transitioning to civil life.
Our offices, located in the heart of Ste. Anne’s Hospital, allow us to remain close and fully abreast of the needs of both Second World War and Korean War veterans, as well as more than 1,200 veterans who come from across the province for treatment at the Operational Stress Injury clinics. In addition, our partnerships with the Montreal West Island IUHSSC, Veterans Affairs Canada, Old Brewery Mission, Veterans Transition Network, and Respect Forum allow us to work in collaboration to ensure that we can collectively fill the gaps between the services a veteran can access and what is needed. Our most important partners, however, are our donors.
Without you, we are not able to deliver on our commitment to helping these deserving women and men. Thank you for your contributions and please keep them in your thoughts throughout the year.
