Share This Post

We were honored to attend the Corrections Wellness Symposium in Hamilton, where we witnessed the debut of Flanders, the Canine Assisted Intervention Animal. It was a fantastic day filled with meaningful connections and networking opportunities. Engaging with fellow Public Safety Personnel and mental health professionals, we continue our commitment to support and empower those dealing with operational stress injuries.

Canadian Public Safety personnel and their families are never on this journey alone. Organizations like Badge of Life Canada are here to be a part of that journey with a pro-active approach to mental wellness. We need to continue the dialogue in order to transform the culture. We are always open to positive comments and suggestions. You can reach us on our website at
