Post-Traumatic Growth Association

Individually We Grow – Together We Achieve

Our Mission

The Post-Traumatic Growth Association (PTGA) is a not-for-profit organization that provides support for those suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress and Operational Stress Injuries to veterans, first responders and those with PTS/OSIs in the general community. The purpose of our peer groups and activities is to provide an environment for connecting with others who are like minded and have similar circumstances; with the goal of reducing isolation and encouraging community connection.

Finding A Pack With Aligned Values

Providing permission to ourselves to explore our new selves and promote redefinition.

Emotional Self-Care

Regulation Takes Practice

Knowing what’s truly best for our individualistic needs takes honest intuition.


Together Is Better

In providing peer events and self-help topic focused peer groups, we aim to bring similar lives together. We are all never alone in our journeys. With the right amount of support, our next dream becomes achievable.


Physical Activity As A Keystone

The best way to aid other facets of wellness such as emotional and mental, is by ensuring our bodies are optimally primed both biologically and physiologically.


Trusted support and belief is what helps us give.

Without Canada House, the PTGA wouldn’t have come to fruition, thus they stand to be the founding sponsor and platinum donor. The legacy of Canada House has always been in support of Veterans, RCMP, first-responders, and their families’ interests by supporting all aspects of the healing journey.
