Community Engagement

Veterans Affairs Canada is committed to honouring those who served Canada in times of war, military conflict and peace, and to keeping the memory of their achievements and sacrifices alive for all Canadians. Community Engagement funding supports commemorative activities (e.g. events) or the development of commemorative resources (e.g. learning materials).
