RESPECT Canada Foundation
Assante Quebec is proud to sponsor the www.respectcanada.org Foundation.
PTSD is a significant challenge facing up to 8% of our Veterans who have been on active duty overseas. This debilitating illness results in depression and may deteriorate into family violence and even homelessness. The RESPECT Campaign has as its mission to raise awareness among Canadians to the needs of our veterans in tackling this issue.
You may have seen the RESPECT Campaign in action if you drive along HWY 40 in the West Island. Sales of RESPECT Banners made to businesses are funding important services helping our troops and veterans who are suffering following their deployments to places like Bosnia, Afghanistan, the Sudan and Congo.
Our troops and veterans need us. As business leaders we can make a difference and bring attention to their plight.
