The 2025 Invictus Games are returning to Canada – this time for the first ever winter edition.

The True Patriot Love Foundation is excited to embark on this experience with a new leadership team, confirmed funding partners, and a powerful shared journey of healing for our military and veteran community.

At this event, you will hear how the Invictus family and their partners will #paddletogether towards a restorative, sustainable and impactful celebration welcoming competitors from up to 25 nations to Vancouver and Whistler in February 2025.

Come learn how you can join us on a shared journey of recovery and rehabilitation.
