Veteran Affairs Disability Pension
If you were in the navy, Veterans Affairs is obligated to compensate veterans and their families who have contracted disease as a result of exposure to asbestos. Merchant marines can also be compensated if the ships that they sailed on were known to have contained asbestos. In practice – but not exclusively – this means navy veterans exposed to asbestos onboard their ships.
The Canadian Red Cross mission is to improve the lives of vulnerable people by mobilizing the power of humanity in Canada and around the world.

The Canadian Veterans Advocacy The Canadian Veterans Advocacy Inc. is an Federal-registered not-for-profit corporation focused on improving the quality of life for Canadian Veterans.
The organization was founded in 2010 by Micheal L. Blais, CD. Mike was inspired by former PPCLI Colonel (Retired) Patrick Stogran, Canada's first Veterans Ombudsman, when he watched the colonel stand up for the rights of Canadian Veterans during an extraordinary press conference in August 2010. Not long after this momentous event, Col Stogran was informed that his tenure as Veterans Ombudsman was over.

Through these offerings, we aim to improve the lives of those involved while instilling in them the importance of Remembrance.

Since its inception, the Veterans Transition Program has maintained the belief that soldiers are best served by other soldiers.
