VETS Canada to Open Halifax/Dartmouth Drop-In and Support Centre


VETS Canada is pleased to announce the grand opening of their Drop-In and Support Centre in downtown Dartmouth at 170 Ochterloney Street – set to open doors on March 4th, 2019.

The Dartmouth site will be the third Drop-In and Support Centre launched by VETS Canada; 2018 saw the opening of Centres in Ottawa and Edmonton (respectively), which have been highly praised by the local Veteran communities.

The Dartmouth Drop-In and Support Centre will be open throughout the week; allowing Veterans a safe and welcoming space to receive direct peer, emotional and/or emergency support. The Centre will also include a computer centre, library and common/social area. Veterans in need will be able to access immediate support, as well as connections to external resources (e.g. Veterans Affairs Canada, community organizations) as needed.

While the Centre will be open to serve Veterans on March 4th , a grand opening reception will be held on March 13th, 2019 at 6:30 pm. The community is invited to attend.
