“The Royal Canadian Legion commends and supports the federal government’s roll-out of a trial program for Canada’s military Veterans at Transition Centre Petawawa, eventually destined for all transition centres across the country. This program has the potential to successfully ease the often-difficult transition to civilian life faced by regular and reserve force Veterans and their families. The Legion has long advocated for stronger initiatives in this area and has called for the specific funding of transition clinics for over a decade. We will continue to advocate for critical transition programs, integral to our Veterans’ well-being.”
Thomas D. Irvine, CD, Dominion President
