The Veterans Alliance of Canada holds weekly Peer Support groups for our members at our offices.

Peer support allows Veterans to speak freely with others who’ve been through similar experiences.
Veterans Emergency Transition Services (VETS) Canada exists solely to help our Canadian veterans. Whatever the need, you can reach out to us in confidence, and we’ll do what it takes to help.
Veterans Farm Project was created to give women veterans the experience of nature through horticulture programs. We aim to maximize a veteran’s physical, psychological, and social strength as well as enhance general health and well-being. Participants can access all 6 acres of the property and take part in any activity that brings them joy or challenges their skills and knowledge. The farm is accessible to those with physical disabilities or challenges and there are specific areas that aid in helping mental health injuries. Some of the programs offered at the farm include farm stands, workshops, archery, yoga, reike, and more.

Occutrauma’s Peer Support Program offers highly-experienced Occupationally Aware Clinicians paired with trained peer support members to facilitate our weekly peer support groups. Our Clinicians co-facilitate by providing clinical information such as risk factors, safety education, signs, and symptoms education and other supports to aid peer support members. As with all our programming, peer support groups are Profession Specific. For example, Military will only sit with Military. Another distinction we offer for Military is Active versus Veterans. We have specific peer support groups for Veterans who have served in combat.
