Our War Amputee Members
As the First World War ended, Canadian amputee veterans returned home and banded together to assist each other in adapting to their new reality as amputees. United by the common bond of amputation, they created The War Amps and, along with those
from the Second World War, were instrumental in pushing for advancements in prosthetic technology, confronting the stigma of disability, advocating for fair pensions for veterans and providing much-needed support to each other. The War Amps
long history – stretching more than 100 years – is a testament to the tireless efforts of the members who built the Association, and its many unique programs, from the ground up.
Our collection of biographies is an evolving document and only a preview of the many dedicated members who contributed to The War Amps over the years.
