The Veterans Independence Program (VIP) helps you remain independent and self-sufficient in your home and your community. Depending on your circumstances and health needs, you may qualify for financial assistance.
VIP does not replace other federal, provincial or municipal programs. Instead its role is to complement existing programs to help meet your needs.
You may qualify for VIP, if you meet one of the following criteria:
- You have qualified for a disability benefit;
- You have qualified for the War Veterans Allowance;
- You are in receipt of Prisoner of War Compensation;
- You are a Veteran who is eligible for, but is unable to access, a Contract Bed (also known as a Priority Access Bed).
