Women Veterans have played an important role in our country’s military efforts over the years and continue to contribute to its rich history and heritage. They often face unique challenges when transitioning to life after service.
The Pepper Pod is working to help. This new retreat for women Veterans, located in Gatineau, Quebec, will receive $914,150 over 5 years from the Veteran and Family Well-Being Fund. This contribution will support Transition Lifeshops, a program where women can share skills, network and support each other. This will benefit women Veterans, soon-to-be Veterans and spouses.
The Government of Canada’s Veteran and Family Well-Being Fund provides grants and contributions to private, public or academic organizations to support research, initiatives and projects that enhance the well-being of Veterans and their families.
