Become A RVC Member

The Rainbow Veterans of Canada (RVC) is a not-for-profit organization that was incorporated in 2019 and represented:

CAF Veteran LGBT Purge Survivors

2SLGBTQ+ personnel who joined the CAF during the time of the LGBT Purge but as a result of the Government of Canada’s discriminatory policies and actions were terminated prior to obtaining sufficient service time to qualify as a veteran,
Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) veterans who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, two-Spirit (2SLGBTQ+)
Our mission is to provide a supportive and safe space for CAF veterans impacted by the LGBT Purge along with other CAF veterans who identify as 2SLGBTQ+ while educating and advocating for the rights, benefits, and recognition our members deserve.

We will:

  • Create opportunities for members to connect with each other (online and in-person)
  • Develop information on resources, partner organizations, and/or benefits.
  • We will also explore ways in which members can support each other and identify opportunities to instill comradery and a sense of pride to be CAF veterans who identify as 2SLGBTQ+.
