Veterans Independence Program

Veterans Independence Program

The Veterans Independence Program (VIP) helps you remain independent and self-sufficient in your home and your community. Depending on your circumstances and health needs you may qualify for financial assistance to obtain services such as grounds maintenance; housekeeping; personal care; access to nutrition; health and support services provided by a health professional.

VIP does not replace other federal, provincial or municipal programs. Instead its role is to complement existing programs to help meet your needs.

Do I Qualify?

You may qualify for VIP, if you meet one of the following criteria:

You have qualified for a disability benefit;
You have qualified for the War Veterans Allowance;
You are in receipt of Prisoner of War Compensation;
You are a Veteran who is eligible for, but is unable to access, a Contract Bed (also known as a Priority Access Bed);
You have been the primary caregiver for an eligible Veteran or civilian;
You are a low-income or disabled survivor of an eligible Veteran or civilian
