PROVINCE ANNOUNCES NEW LEGION AND ANAVETS SUPPORT PROGRAM
Premier Scott Moe announced the creation of the new Legion and ANAVETS Support Program that will provide funding grants to Royal Canadian Legion branches and Army, Navy, Air Force Veterans (ANAVETS) units in Saskatchewan. This grant program will assist with the important work of supporting veterans and keeping the memory of our fallen heroes.
“Past and present members of the Canadian Forces have taken it upon themselves to safeguard our freedoms and give back greatly to their communities,” Moe said. “Now it's our turn to support our veterans who have served and put everything on the line. Today, our government is announcing a $100,000 Legion and ANAVETS Support Program that will provide funding grants to Legion branches and ANAVETS units across Saskatchewan.”
“We want to help legions so veterans, their families and community members have access to facilities for the programming, activities, events and meetings they host,” Parks, Culture, and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said. “Their dedication to providing services for veterans is invaluable to our communities.”
