Our mission with our Veteran's programs is to empower and support Canadian veterans who are facing challenges due to their service. We believe in providing them with transformative adventure travel experiences, offering them a sense of purpose, camaraderie, and a connection to their fellow veterans and community.
We strive to create a safe and inclusive environment where veterans can explore their physical and mental capabilities while challenging themselves in the great outdoors. By venturing off the beaten path, we aim to take them on extraordinary journeys that provide a renewed sense of purpose and accomplishment.
Through our carefully designed expeditions, we foster a strong sense of brotherhood and sisterhood among our participants, encouraging the formation of lifelong friendships and support networks. We understand the vital importance of providing a space for veterans to share their stories, bond over shared experiences, and find solace and understanding in the company of others who have walked similar paths.
We are committed to working closely with local communities, businesses, and veteran support organizations to create sustainable and enriching experiences for our participants. By collaborating with these partners, we aim to contribute positively to the communities we visit and foster a sense of appreciation and gratitude for the natural world and the people who inhabit it.
At Off Trail Odysseys, we believe that every veteran deserves the opportunity to thrive and find fulfillment beyond their military service. Through adventure travel, we aim to restore their sense of purpose, reignite their passion for life, and provide them with the support and connection they need to overcome their challenges and forge a brighter future.
Join us on this incredible journey as we empower Canadian veterans to rediscover their strength, resilience, and joy in life. Together, we can make a lasting impact and create a community where no veteran is left behind.
We partner with fundraising organizations and private benefactors to provide bespoke expeditions that include veteran participants who have their costs covered through partner fundraising initiatives and direct 'cost coverage' sponsorship.
To date, Off Trail has provided 'at cost' services in support of the True Patriot Love Foundation's fundraising expeditions that helped raise over $750,000 since 2021!
