Can Praxis

While the Canadian Forces uses team building, communications training and leadership development to prepare soldiers for war, Can Praxis uses horses to help soldiers recover from it and regain their family relationships. CanPraxis is a collaboration between Steve Critchley and Jim Marland. Steve is a 28 year veteran of the Canadian Forces and an international mediator, facilitator, negotiator, and trainer. Jim is a registered psychologist, Equine Assisted Learning Facilitator, mountaineer, sailor, corporate trainer and a professional speaker.

Quilt presentations

ALL the Quilters, when we hand out your quilts to the Veterans at the end of the Can Praxis program one of the first things they look for is identification of who made the quilt. To see your name brings tears to their eyes as it is such a meaningful demonstration that Canadians do care about our Veterans and their families. My request to all Quilters, please ensure you add your contact info as it means so much to our Veterans to see your name.
