As is often the case with non-profit organizations or Societies, they often see other groups operating within their realm as direct competition, particularly as this relates to the never-ending struggle to raise funds.  In a manner that will become a trait of Citadel Canine Society as our organization moves forward, we have chosen to colour outside the lines, and have included within the Links listed below a collection of non-profit organizations that specifically focus on helping Canada’s veterans.  Some have been around for decades, while others are relatively new.  Some focus on direct support for newer veterans, while others have become advocates for specific veterans’ issues.  A select few have actually taken up the legal challenge on behalf of Canada’s newest veterans. 

Some are very large in terms of general membership, while others operate with a handful of supporters.  We like them all, and indeed consider it both a privilege and an honour to have them listed below.
