Save Juno Beach Efforts

A group of Canadians is working to stop a proposed development of seaside condominiums at Juno Beach in France, the site of Canada’s famous D-Day landings.

A questionable municipal land deal has turned over a large portion of Juno Beach to a developer who plans to build 70 seaside condos this year. It is right on the doorstep of the Juno Beach Centre (JBC) – Canada’s primary WWII site in Europe to commemorate the sacrifice of Canadians who helped liberate France and Europe.


New guide for doctors on caring for Veterans / Nouveau guide pour les médecins sur les soins aux vétérans

(le français suit l’anglais)

Dear Stakeholders,

Veterans Affairs Canada and the College of Family Physicians of Canada have collaborated to create Best Advice Guide: Caring for Veterans – a resource for family doctors and other primary care providers. The guide highlights special considerations for the health needs of Veterans while sharing best practices, practical tips, and resources.

The guide is available on the College of Family Physicians of Canada’s website.

Family doctors play an essential role in the health and well-being of Veterans. A doctor who understands the military experience and the challenges of life after service can have a significant impact on the health and well-being of Veterans and their families.

If you or someone you know is a health professional who treats Veterans, we kindly ask you to share this resource with your professional network. Veterans are also encouraged to share this resource with their primary care provider.

For general inquiries about the Guide, physicians can email the College of Family Physicians of Canada at healthpolicy@cfpc.ca.

Thank you for your ongoing engagement and participation.

À tous les intervenants,

Anciens Combattants Canada et le Collège des médecins de famille du Canada ont collaboré pour créer le Guide conseil pratique : Les soins aux vétérans – une ressource pour les médecins de famille et les autres fournisseurs de soins de première ligne. Le guide met en évidence des considérations spéciales pour les besoins de santé des vétérans, tout en partageant les meilleures pratiques, des conseils utiles et des ressources.

Le guide est disponible sur le site Web du Collège des médecins de famille du Canada.

Les médecins de famille jouent un rôle essentiel dans les soins aux vétérans. Un médecin qui comprend l’expérience militaire et les défis de la vie après le service peut avoir une incidence importante sur la santé et le bien-être des vétérans et de leur famille.

Si vous ou quelqu’un que vous connaissez êtes un professionnel de la santé qui traite des vétérans, nous vous prions de partager cette ressource avec votre réseau professionnel. Les vétérans sont également encouragés à partager cette ressource avec leur principal fournisseur de soins.

Pour des questions d’ordre général au sujet du guide, les médecins peuvent envoyer un courriel au Collège des médecins de famille du Canada à healthpolicy@cfpc.ca.

Merci pour votre engagement et votre participation continus.
