Programs & Services

Since our inception in 2010, several veterans and concerned citizens have rallied to our call to assist veterans. The CVA now has sufficient support to offer a Service Directorate which caters to the significant number of Canadian Peacekeeping and Afghanistan veterans who do not belong to Canada's traditional veterans' organizations.

Navigating the VAC Application Process and Appeal System

Dealing with Veterans Affairs Canada can be overwhelming. If you find yourself in a position where you have questions or need advice on how to navigate this labyrinthine organization we are here to assist you. Take advantage of the combined knowledge and experience of our network of veterans. The CVA can help you navigate VAC.

Pennies for Veterans

There are thousands of homeless veterans across our nation. The CVA is determined to help improve the lives of these unfortunate vets. Pennies for Veterans is our fundraising program aimed at raising money for this cause. Learn more about the program.

Trial Lawyers for Veterans

Trial Lawyers for Veterans was established by the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association in December 2010. The program provides veterans with access to pro-bono legal representation to assist them in their dealings with VAC. Learn more about this legal assistance program.

Financial Emergencies

Unfortunately, the CVA does not have the financial resources to provide relief. But we do want to remind veterans that you are entitled to assistance through the Royal Canadian Legion's Poppy Fund during times of duress or fiscal problems. Find your local legion here.
