The War Amps has been continued under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act and is registered as a charitable organization with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). The
War Amps is funded by donations to the Key Tag Service. It does not receive government grants.
Since 1918, The War Amps has met the needs of war amputees. Today, the Association continues to serve them, and all Canadian amputees, including children. The Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program provides financial assistance for artificial limbs, regional seminars and peer support. Through CHAMP, The War Amps tradition of “amputees helping amputees” will continue long into the future.
Looking ahead to the future, it is our intention that The War Amps Regional Representatives (all of them CHAMP graduates who have had a long and dedicated involvement with the Association as well as providing outstanding assistance to other amputees in their communities) will help continue our mission.
As part of our ongoing operational/continuation plan, our Regional Representatives will play an important role as part of our governance structure, furthering the legacy of the war amputees who originally founded the Association and established the essential charitable programs that have successfully evolved over the years.
