When a member serves in the military, the entire family serves as well. Families play a critical role in enhancing the well-being of military personnel and Veterans, particularly those with service-related health conditions. Important as they are to the well-being of military members and Veterans, the families face challenges too. Constant awareness of the potential dangers faced by their serving parent, spouse, or child, caring for members or Veterans with service-related conditions,  geographic moves and transitioning out of military life all present challenges and require sacrifices by members of military families. The 2023 Canadian Walk For Veterans pays tribute to these “Heroes of the Homefront”.

This year, in-person events will be held in cities across the country but for those walkers who are unable to attend these events, we invite you to participate in a virtual walk at a place and time of your choosing over the weekend of September 23rd and 24th. We encourage all virtual walkers to share publicly pictures or videos of your walk experience on our social media @canwalk4vets.
