The Legion Veterans Village Research Foundation is pleased to announce the official grand opening of the Legion Veterans Village (LVV), a unique $312-million multi-purpose social infrastructure project led by the BC/Yukon Command of The Royal Canadian Legion, together with Whalley Legion Branch 229 and Lark Group in Surrey B.C. The project features a first-of-its-kind Centre of Clinical Excellence in veteran and first responder health, a new Whalley Legion, as well as 91 affordable housing units owned and operated by VRS Communities, and 171 market housing units in phase one of the overall development.
A new integrated mental health complex in Surrey aimed at helping veterans with issues like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and rehab is getting some extra funding from a local Legion and charity.
Thanks to Maple Ridge Legion Branch 88, the future of mental health for veterans and first responders looks a little brighter.
The Royal Canadian Legion Maple Ridge Branch 88 together with the Earl Haig Society has gifted the Legion Veterans Village Research Foundation (LVVRF) a total of $600,000 to initiate the ongoing mental health, PTSD, technologies and rehabilitation research within the Legion Veterans Village Centre for Clinical Excellence.
As construction on Legion Veterans Village (LVV) continues to progress with Remembrance Day fast approaching, LVV has established its Centre of Clinical Excellence Leadership Team, comprised of renowned science and clinical experts to lead the PTSD, mental health and rehabilitation, as well as oversee the clinical research and innovation activities of LVV.
