We recognize the unique experiences of Indigenous Service Members and Veterans. 

Indigenous Veterans have a strong history of service in the Canadian Forces. With this service comes unique experiences and challenges both in uniform and in the transition to civilian life. We salute all First Nations, Inuit and Métis Veterans for their contributions and service to Canada!

That’s why we’ve created The Men’s Indigenous Veterans Transition Pilot Program. This program is a place to heal alongside fellow Veterans while exercising spiritual and traditional identities.

This September, we invite you to join us.

The Men’s Indigenous Veterans Transition Pilot Program is based on our internationally recognized, research-backed Veterans Transition Program (VTP). Delivered in partnership with True Patriot Love, this one of a kind program will be facilitated by psychologists who’ve received special training in Indigenous military issues and co-led by VTP Graduates who are Indigenous Veterans themselves. All expenses, including travel, will be covered.

“When I arrived, I immediately found the challenge I was looking for. This was a different band of brothers than any I had ever known.”

Are you a female Indigenous Veteran?  Our Men’s Indigenous Veterans Transition Pilot Program is an opportunity for us to learn and refine our services to meet the needs of Indigenous Veterans. We are keen to take these lessons and incorporate them into a program for Indigenous Women of the Canadian Forces and RCMP. If you or somebody you know is a female Indigenous Veteran interested in this culturally specific program, please let us know!

Note: Our Veterans Transition Programs are open to all Canadian Forces/RCMP Veterans and currently serving members.
