Veterans Affairs Canada announces funding for The Gregg Centre at the University of New Brunswick

Fredericton: It is important that Canadians understand and appreciate the contributions and sacrifices made by all those who have served their country in uniform.

Today, the Honourable Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Veterans Affairs and Associate Minister of National Defence, accompanied by Jenica Atwin, Member of Parliament for Fredericton, announced up to $486,000 over three years in support of The Gregg Centre for the Study of War and Society for a research and education project on the modern experience of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF).

The project, titled In Service of Canada: The Canadian Armed Forces Around the World since 1949, will present an interactive learning platform featuring a variety of online activities, podcasts, and interviews with Canadian Veterans.

The project aligns with VAC’s strategic plan on the future of remembrance to evolve how we pay tribute to the Canadians who served our country, at home and abroad.
