Ontario's Soldiers' Aid Commission
Ontario's Soldiers' Aid Commission provides financial assistance to Canadian veterans in need who served overseas and their surviving dependants living in Ontario.
Applications for assistance are available through the Royal Canadian Legions (Ontario Command) and Veterans Affairs Canada. The assistance is provided on a one-time basis to resolve a specific problem when all other resources have been exhausted.
Funds may be granted to assist with the purchase of:
- Health-related items such as a hearing aid, eyeglasses or dental needs
- Home repairs, moving costs or furniture
- Assistive devices.
The Commission does not support ongoing needs related to income deficiencies. Before requesting assistance, it is important to ensure that assistance is not otherwise available through existing programs, such as and the Assistive Devices Program.
