Veterans Independence Program

Veterans Independence Program

The Veterans Independence Program (VIP) is a national home care program provided by Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC). The program was put in place by the Government of Canada to help clients remain healthy and independent in their own homes or communities. Depending on your circumstances and health needs you may qualify for financial assistance to obtain services such as grounds maintenance; housekeeping; personal care; access to nutrition; health and support services provided by a health professional.

VIP does not replace other federal, provincial or municipal programs. Instead, it complements these programs to best meet the needs of our clients.

To learn more about the VIP Program and establish whether you qualify, please contact an iCare Home Health representative by calling (905) 491-6941, or by email at
