Support Our Troops is the official charitable cause of the Canadian Armed Forces.

Established in 2007, Support Our Troops meets the unique needs and special challenges faced by members of the Canadian Armed Forces community as a result of military service. It operates within Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services.

Some of the ways Support Our Troops supports the community includes providing financial assistance to promote family resiliency, to support the recovery, rehabilitation, and reintegration of members with a physical and/or mental illness or injury and various other elements that help the community cope with the rigor involved with military life.

Well recognized by its trademarked yellow ribbon, the organization also provides an opportunity for supporters to show their care, compassion and support to serving members, veterans and their families through donations, attending community events and fundraising.

Thank you for standing with us!

For more information, please visit Support Our Troops.

The Soldier On program is a highly visible and integral program of the Canadian Armed Forces Transition Group. Since its creation in 2007, Soldier On has supported over 7,000 ill and injured serving and veteran military personnel with a permanent or chronic disability (visible or non-visible). This support enables participating members to attain an active and healthy lifestyle. Soldier On supports these personnel by increasing their independence, by challenging them to develop new skills, and by achieving goals and opening the door to other life opportunities. Soldier On, supported by generous Canadians, furnishes an opportunity for its ill/injured members to socialize and explore common interests, and share learning experiences through peer-based program delivery.
