VETS Canada 2018 Tour of Duty – Locations & Details!


VETS Canada is excited to announce the date of our 3rd annual Coast to Coast Tour of Duty: 9 June 2018!

One of things that sets us at VETS Canada apart from other Veteran initiatives is that we don’t wait for those in need to come to us; our volunteers literally hit the streets boots on the ground in their communities in search of Veterans in crisis / living homeless. The VETS Canada Coast to Coast Tour of Duty is just that, but on a much larger scale.

The VETS Canada Coast to Coast Tour of Duty is one of our annual, national events with a dual purpose: to encourage dialogue at the community and national level regarding Veteran homelessness, and to locate (and provide help for) Veterans in need from one tip of Canada to the other. The event takes the form of awareness Walks from coast to coast at 13h00 local time on 9 June 2018.

The public is encouraged to participate in their local 2018 Tour of Duty Walk; to help create important conversations, both locally and nationally, about homelessness / homelessness prevention amongst Veterans – and about VETS Canada’s ability to help. If you are interested in participating in this important initiative and attending a Walk near you, please contact us at:
