The Army, Navy & Air Force Veterans in Canada Association, Unit #10, invites you to explore our website to learn about us.
We are Canada's oldest veterans', ex-service persons' and community service organization with more than 18,000 members and 70 units throughout Canada. We have one unit in the USA referred to as ANAVICUS.
Our first unit was formed in 1840 in Montreal and our non-profit organization was incorporated by a special ACT of Canada's Parliament in 1917.
Our primary mission is to serve, protect and promote the well being of Canada's veterans, ex-service persons and their dependents.
