Team Rubicon Canada is receiving $450,000 from the federal Veteran and Family Well Being Fund to expand its program development and delivery.

Veterans Affairs Minister Lawrence MacAulay announced the funding yesterday. “Team Rubicon provides tremendous support to communities after disasters and crises like Hurricane Fiona and the Fort McMurray wildfires,” MacAulay said in a statement.

The funds will allow Team Rubicon Canada to provide specialized emergency management training, education, and experiential learning through both expanded, and refined course offerings, coupled with field leadership opportunities for Veterans.

“Team Rubicon Canada is grateful for the continued support of Veterans Affairs Canada,” Bryan Riddell, CEO of Team Rubicon Canada, said in the statement. “Our Veteran Education and Training Initiative aims to provide specialized training and experiential learning opportunities to Veterans both in the field and in the classroom, at no charge to them. Together, we’re empowering Veterans to continue their service to communities facing humanitarian emergencies.”
