“I am writing to express my support for your organization’s first Homes for Heroes project to provide dedicated housing and assistance for 15 to 20 homeless Veterans in Calgary later this year.
Canada’s men and women in uniform make tremendous sacrifices to defend the freedom we enjoy today, and no Veteran should have to live on the street.
Eliminating homelessness and ensuring access to affordable housing for everyone, including Veterans, requires a whole-of-government approach. My department is committed to ensuring that our nation fulfills its duty of care for those who selflessly served our country, and we are working with partners at the local, provincial and national levels to address homelessness among Veterans.”
The Honourable Kent Hehr, PC, MP
Minister of Veterans Affairs
