Learn about what we do
Welcome to Battletested.ca
The Canadian Military has been helping us at home and abroad for a long time. Now its our turn to help them. Many soldiers have trouble adjusting to civilian life, are experiencing PTSD or struggling to get the support they need. Let’s see if we can do something about it.
BATTLETESTED was formed to raise awareness of Veterans needs, provide an opportunity to assist in the specific needs of our Veterans and to give back to the community through donations. If you are a Veteran, please take advantage of our offerings. If you aren't but want to help., consider donating to the program and learn about the issues facing our people.
Introducing the cause
The organizations below have joined forces to help address problem areas that Canadian Military Veterans are experiencing and add their support. Wearing our jersey is one way to do so!

Contributions of $600* or more will receive a BATTLETESTED original hockey jersey to show your support and your membership to the team. Click to make your donation today! You can also donate your jersey to a veteran as per the veteran marketplace below!

WOLF SOLKIN CAP
With this addition we honour the late Wolf Solkin. A fiery soul and relentless advocate! In his 90’s he started an internal newspaper at his veterans hospital. He led a class action suit driven from his hospital bed on his iPad, which was successful just prior to his passing in his 98th year. You can join us as well with a gift of $130 on our site to receive one of these special editions!! Tax receipts will be issued minus the $30 value of the hat.
WOLF SOLKIN - - THE STORIES
Lest we forget people like Wolf (pictured here) and other like him who gave so much, we are pleased to include a link to the site www.vetvoicecan.org which tells stories from veterans that should be acknowledged. Thank you to Al Cameron for this tremendous work.
