National Defence COVID-19 Emergency Charity Campaign

Support fellow Canadians right in your own community

Canada, like much of the world, had our way of life affected dramatically in mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Millions of Canadians have been impacted – businesses are closed, Canadians have lost jobs, many are ill, thousands have died, and Canadians continue to contract the virus even as we do our best to flatten the curve.

Members of the Defence Team support Canadians at home and abroad every single day. Canadians and the organizations that help Canadians need our assistance urgently to deal with wide-ranging impacts of COVID-19. Support Canadians by donating to the National Defence COVID-19 Emergency Charity Campaign.
