The Quebec Veterans Foundation is proud to offer an innovative assistance program exclusively for women veterans, whose main objective is to meet their specific needs. The Barry F. Lorenzetti Foundation (BFLF) has generously agreed to provide major funding for a three-year period.
The Veteran and Family Well-Being Fund has provided financial support to private, public, and academic organizations striving to improve the lives of Veterans and their families through innovative projects, initiatives, and research. The QVF is a proud recipient of this grant from Veterans Affairs Canada and thanks to their important financial support, we will be able to perrenise and continue to develop this program which has a positive impact on the wellness of women veterans everywhere in Quebec.
Through this initiative, we hope to help reduce the rate of isolation and suicide among women veterans by encouraging organizations to offer resources adapted to their unique needs. When transitioning to civilian life, women veterans need access to a support system that fits their reality.
