About TB Vets

Since 1946, TB Vets has been supporting the frontlines of respiratory care in British Columbia.

From the battlefields of World War II to fighting respiratory illnesses upon their return, B.C. veterans embraced the meaning of compassion. They took a holistic approach with their vision of serving disabled and inflicted veterans, giving meaningful employment while providing a community service to British Columbians.

Through the creation of the TB Vets Key Tag program and the subsequent TB Vets Charitable Foundation, veterans and the disabled manufactured key tags and offered them as a free community service. Over time as donations from the key tags grew, B.C. veterans reached further out into the community, and began supporting research, education and support programs for respiratory health.
