scholarship
Scholarship Program

This program’s aim is to recognize the sacrifice Canada’s military members make in service to our country, and to honour their legacy through the children they have left behind. It includes children of military members who passed away due to PTSD. Eligible children receive $4,000.00 a year, for a maximum of four years, in scholarship for their college or university education.

Through Project Hero we also facilitate learning institutions providing free tuition or services to the children of the Fallen.

education
Je Me Souviens Program

The general aim of this program is to teach the Quebec secondary school students the special role military members from the province of Quebec played during wars and conflicts. The program offers easy to use tools to the teachers. In collaboration with the RMR and R22eR, the program is supported by artifacts from their regimental museum which offers the extra benefit of illustrating history with concrete and local examples.

A Day In The Life Of… Program

The aim of this program is to provide unique opportunities for civilian leaders to experience the leadership and intricacies of the military life first-hand. Spending time with the Air Force, a day doing combat maneuvers with the Army or three days at sea with the Navy are great team building activities that we make available to our contributors. Our program includes Exercise Collaborative Spirit in Ontario, Leaders at Sea in British Columbia, with others to come.

Camps for Children of Military Members Project

The aim of this project is to support children of military members, including children with special needs or living with a parent suffering from PTSD, to attend summer camps where they can evolve in a carefree environment filled with opportunities to learn, grow, create and play.
