Honouring Canadian
Military Families

Together We Stand is a non-for-profit foundation that offers unique programming, services, and support to Canada’s brave and resilient military families.

Together We Stand is excited to announce our partnership with NORAD Tracks Santa for the 2021 Holiday Season. We are happy to lend our support to tracking the jolly man in red, a tradition that’s been happening for kids across the world for 65 years!

TWS Operations: FALLEN

When a member of the Canadian Armed Forces loses their life while in uniform, it reminds our country of the ultimate liability serving members face in the name of duty. The fallen men and women leave behind the families who pay the ultimate price in the name of service.

We honour these families and will never forget their sacrifice.

TWS Operations: Military Family Appreciation Day
A Day For Military Families

Military Family Appreciation Day (MFAD) was created to celebrate, acknowledge and honour these families, a day to give thanks to those who stand beside the uniform. Our goal is to raise awareness of the challenges, sacrifices and resiliency military families face as they support their loved ones who are currently serving, or have served in the Canadian Armed Forces.

TWS Operations: Care PAckage
Care Packages Delivered to Military Families

A thank you to our Canadian Armed Forces families. Together We Stand began Operation Care Package in 2017 by sending gift boxes filled with a variety of gift cards, discounts and gifts in-kind to military families with a loved one deployed overseas during the holiday season. To date, over 9,500 gift boxes have been sent to 29 military communities across the country.

Giving Thanks.

Dear Together We Stand Foundation, I would like to thank you for sending us the Family Gift Box. It is sometimes difficult for military families to be apart, especially during the holidays, and it's an honour to receive this recognition...
- Madison R

Stories From
The Homefront:
"I am a military spouse"

I married my husband not long after the movies Top Gun and An Officer and a Gentlemen were big box office hits. 

I’ve often wondered since then why there hasn’t been a class-action suit brought against Tom Cruise or Richard Gere because of the impact those movies had on the hearts of the women of my generation, women like myself who jumped right into relationships with these men in uniform expecting excitement, romance, and adventure, yet completely blind to the reality of their lives to come.

As a military spouse, I’ve moved 16 times, lived in four different countries on two different continents, in three states, three provinces, five different time zones, and I learned three languages…
