St. John’s, Halifax and Toronto put Boots on the Ground


Today was an extremely busy day for our Boots on the Ground teams in St. John’s,  Halifax and Toronto who were on the streets in their respective provinces searching for Veterans in crisis and educating the public about the services that VETS Canada is able to provide.


St. John’s Team Lead, Donald Hookey, started off at the War Memorial in downtown St. John’s

The Toronto volunteers were happy to chat with this Veteran.  He says he doesn’t need any help right now but has our contact info if he changes his mind
