>The Quebec Veterans Foundation is a charitable organization that supports programs aimed at helping veterans in their transition to civilian life in Quebec. Our organization is spreading its wings and participating in promising programs that meet the needs of veterans with an Operational Stress Injury (OSI), such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), homelessness and veterans in long-term care at Ste. Anne’s Hospital.
>BFLF Women Veterans Program: This program is proud to offer an innovative assistance program exclusively for women veterans, whose main objective is to meet their specific needs. Through this initiative, we hope to help reduce the rate of isolation and suicide among women veterans by encouraging organizations to offer resources adapted to their unique needs. When transitioning to civilian life, women veterans need access to a support system that fits their reality. [https://fqv-qvf.ca/en/bflf-women-veterans-program/]
>Long-Term Care for Veterans at Ste. Anne’s Hospital: Today, 110 veterans reside at Ste. Anne’s Hospital in long-term care for whom we offer therapeutic activities, to counter isolation and stimulate cognitive activities, such as pet therapy, art projects, humor and musicography. Social activities (bingo, concerts, games, etc.) are also regularly offered. [http://fqv-qvf.ca/en/the-programs/#steanneshospital]
