Effective Date


Implementation of all Budget 2017 initiatives is expected on April 1, 2018.


Background


The Government of Canada is fulfilling its commitment to the well-being of Veterans and their families through the establishment of a Veteran and Family Well-Being Fund. This fund would be used for the development of new and innovative ways to support Veterans and their families by providing financial support to organizations to conduct research and implement initiatives and projects. These organizations can be non-profit, voluntary and in some cases, for-profit as well.

This benefit is just one step the Government is taking to continue to improve benefits and services offered to Canadian Armed Forces members, Veterans and their families.


Quick Facts


$13.9 million over four years to establish a Veteran and Family Well-Being Fund to foster the development of innovative programs by third-party organizations.

VAC would issue periodic calls for proposals where stakeholders would be invited to submit applications for funding for projects and initiatives related to issues impacting Veterans and their families. The Veteran and Family Well-Being Fund would be used to support these projects and initiatives.

The fund would support the promotion of increased knowledge and understanding through research, and the development of community based and innovative services to address new and emerging needs within the Veteran community.

The new fund would come into effect April 1, 2018.

The Veteran and Family Well-Being Fund is open for a second round of applications until March 29th.

EDMONTON, March 13, 2019 /CNW/ - Veterans Affairs Canada - The Honourable Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Veterans Affairs and Associate Minister of National Defence, met with three organizations receiving funding from the Veteran and Family Well-Being Fund in 2018 during a recent visit to Edmonton.

Minister MacAulay discussed the unique initiatives the three Edmonton-based organizations are undertaking. He also encouraged other organizations whose research, projects or initiative will have a positive and lasting impact on the Veteran community, to apply for the second round of funding in 2019.

The Governors of the University of Alberta, A New Dynamic Enterprise Inc. (ANDE), and Klassen Rehabilitation Consulting, Appelt OT/Mindful Pain Management, and JL Smith Occupational Therapy Services Ltd. attended the meeting, where the Minister had a chance to discuss the progress achieved so far as a result of the VAC's investment.

The Governors of the University of Alberta are testing Hand self-Shiatsu--a pragmatic, no-cost, non-pharmacological form of sleep intervention.

ANDE are implementing the Transitions LifeShop--a two and a half day retreat that uses neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) to tap into limiting beliefs, meta-programs and identify unproductive habits, patterns and stress triggers.

Klassen Rehabilitation Consulting, Appelt OT/Mindful Pain Management, and JL Smith Occupational Therapy Services Ltd.—a group of occupational therapists with training and certification to facilitate mindfulness meditation programs—are developing the Mindfulness-Based Chronic Pain Management (MBCPM) program to ease the pain and suffering of people who live with chronic pain.

Quotes

"I am very impressed with the work these organizations have been doing with the funding they received from the Well-Being Fund. The programs and services they're developing are helping Veterans manage chronic pain, creating transition retreats where Veterans can make major gains in personal development, and offering non-pharmacological ways to live with occupational stress injuries and combat sleep deprivation—all of which are important steps forward for Veterans and their families."
The Honourable Lawrence MacAulay, Minster of Veterans Affairs and Associated Minister of National Defence
