Welcome to the Aboriginal Veterans Autochtones

Welcome to the Aboriginal Veterans Autochtones.

The Aboriginal Veterans Autochtones (AVA) is a nationally incorporated organization that represents the interests of Canadian Aboriginal Veterans and serving members who are of Aboriginal descent. This fills the void left by the dissolution of the National Aboriginal Veterans Association.

Good bye to the Canadian Army Commander

On July 14th, the AVA presented a departure gift to the Canadian Army Commander for his support to AVA. The gift is a Medallion with a Vandoo badge as LGen Hainse is part of the Royal 22e Regiment.

Minister of Veterans Affairs Commendation

Congratulations to John Jewitt and Gerry Dore on receiving the Minister of Veterans Affairs Commendation.

Since serving in uniform, many of Canada’s Veterans continue to provide outstanding service to their country, their communities and their fellow Veterans. To formally recognize the contributions of these outstanding Canadians, the Governor General authorized the creation of the Minister of Veterans Affairs Commendation.

The Commendation is awarded annually to individuals who have contributed in an exemplary manner to the care and well-being of Veterans or to the remembrance of the contributions, sacrifices and achievements of Veterans.

The Commendation is intended primarily for Veterans, but may be awarded to non-Veterans.
