TB Vets is a charitable organization under the Canadian Not-for-profit Corporations Act and registered with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). TB Vets is funded by donations to the Key Tag Program and the 50/50 Raffle. It does not receive government grants.
Since 1926, TB Vets has met the needs of Veterans and their families with respiratory ailments. Today, the organization continues to serve them, and all British Columbians by providing vital respiratory equipment to hospitals and first responders, to support Respiratory Education and Research.
Over the past six years, TB Vets was able to grant approximately $5 Million dollars in support of our mission. With 20 pieces of essential respiratory equipment donated each year, that’s approx. 219,000 patients helped over 6 years. We also now support the free “Get Up and Breathe” fitness program, and offer free educational webinars as community outreach.

As part of TB Vets commitment to being accountable to our donors, we are pleased to provide you with our audited financial statements. The intent of this financial information is to provide valuable statistics for our donors in terms of explaining our programs and how your donations are being spent.
In 1946, TB Vets launched the Key Tag program in British Columbia to provide employment for returning veterans from the Second World War. Throughout the intervening years, Veterans with respiratory and other disabilities worked for the Key Tag, “lost and found” program. Although we no longer employ persons with disabilities we continue serving the community with the Key Tag “lost and found” program.
All of the detailed financial information is provided in our annual filing, form T3010, which is available to the public on the CRA website. Our full, audited financial statements are also available below.
TB Vets financial statements are prepared and audited by Rolfe Benson, LLP, Chartered Professional Accountants. They also prepare our annual filing of the T3010 government return.
We are continually evaluating how we present our financial information in order to ensure that we provide our donors with the facts they need to make a well-informed decision.
TB Vets is proud of its esteemed history and the services we offer to British Columbians. Public support of the Key Tag program, which has returned more than 600,000 sets of lost keys, enables TB Vets to continue to serve the community as our honored Veterans intended.
