Introducing our Veterans' Recreation and Creative Arts Program 

The Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre has one of Canada’s finest recreation and creative-arts programs.

Veterans residing at the Centre participate in a remarkable range of activities—from pottery, painting and woodworking to gardening and group outings. Program activities, delivered by a mix of certified therapists and professional artists with support from volunteers, run from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. every day, including statutory holidays.

All activities are designed to improve the quality of life experienced by the approximately 250 Veterans who reside at the Perley Rideau. The ready access to materials, studios and professional support inspires many to take up new pursuits. The Program is particularly successful at sparking improvements in mood and energy among recent arrivals at the Perley Rideau.
