Since 1996, thousands of valentines from children and youth have been distributed to Veterans in long-term care facilities across the country through the Valentines for Veterans program.
This program provides a learning opportunity for students and youth groups—and the valentines they create are treasured by Veterans who receive them.
To take part in this initiative, Canadians can:
- deliver cards to Veterans in their community,
- share photos of their valentines on the Veterans Affairs Facebook page,
- send an e-card to a Veteran they know, or
- send their cards to Veterans Affairs Canada, and we’ll deliver them to Veterans. You can mail your cards to:
Valentines for Vets
Veterans Affairs Canada
Commemoration, Distribution Unit
125 Maple Hills Avenue

The Valentines for Veterans program helps us show Veterans that Canadians remember and recognize their courage, contributions, and sacrifice.
I encourage you to join me in brightening the day of Veterans or Canadian Armed Forces members this Valentine’s Day. Learn how you can send one here.
