Born out the collective frustration of dealing with various departments, agencies and other groups, welcome to The Canadian Veterans Association Network.
We all come from a family, either the Canadian Forces, or the RCMP. At present, our family appears to be dysfunctional.
The CVA Network aims to bring our family together. There are several portals and groups on social media, but our voices are scattered.
We often here of distraught fellow veterans and their families struggling.
They struggle with forms, processes and red tape. They struggle with support and dealing with agencies that are suppose to be helping us.
We all struggle to get real and accurate information.
By coming together we can create a collective voice that cannot be ignored.
We need some volunteers to get us going and your membership to make us strong. There is no cost to be a member. The CVA Network accepts all members; Veterans, Family Members as well as those who just care.
Let's not forget about our rights!
