The Dealhack Canadian Military and Veteran Discounts List is the result of our quarterly survey of brands that offer discounts to all members of the Canadian Armed Forces. Every 3 months, our team independently verifies each and every discount on this list. We also add more brands to the list regularly when we come across them.
The list currently includes more than 80 brands conveniently broken down into 10 categories. You can also save or print the list to use as a handy reference.
Note that in addition to the discounts listed below, many businesses offer informal discounts to military personnel and veterans across Canada. When buying something, always be sure to ask the store associate about whether or not they offer military or veteran discounts.
