Over 10 years ago, the King's Trust Canada created Operation Entrepreneur, a program that recognized the unique skills of Veterans. Since then, we have supported more than 6000 Veterans turn their business ideas into reality and transition from military to civilian life.  

Over the last decade, the landscape of Veteran-serving organizations in Canada has significantly grown. Today, there are many expert organizations offering specialized support to Veterans and their families. In light of this changed landscape, we have made the decision to sunset our Veteran programming and transfer our assets and programs to organizations who are well-placed to provide entrepreneurship support to this incredible group of Canadians. 

We are honoured to have served Canada's Veteran community and celebrate the success of the program. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all our partners, donors, Entrepreneurs-in-Residence, mentors, and program participants who contributed to the incredible success of our Veteran programming.

We look forward to applying our full focus on responding to Canada's youth unemployment crisis and the needs of Canada's young people, including the children of Veterans.

To ensure Veterans continue to be supported, we have compiled a comprehensive referrals list that represents diverse range of opportunities for Veteran entrepreneurs, including business incubators, mentorship programs and networking groups. Each referral has been carefully chosen to ensure that they align with the unique needs and aspirations of this community.
