Last Post Fund member wins 30 under 30 award
Victoria, BC, April 3, 2017 – Alistair Vigier appeared in BC Business’s 30 under 30 in the April magazine. Vigier worked for the Department of National Defence from 2007-2014 and was shot while on operation in 2009. After being medically released and recovering, Vigier started his career in marketing and sales with The Commissionaires.
In 2014 Vigier joined the Last Post Fund as a board member of the British Columbia office.
“I wanted to give back to the community and The Last Post Fund was something that was close to my heart. Throughout my medical release, I met a lot of veterans who were injured in Afghanistan or in other parts of the world,” said Vigier.
The Last Post Fund is a non-profit organization that has existed since 1909. The Last Post Fund raises funds for veterans who were honourably discharged and have fallen on hard times. It is the goal of The Last Post Fund to make sure that every Canadian veteran can afford a funeral.
The Last Post Fund wants to raise awareness of the fund, as many families of veterans do not know that the fund exists. If you know of a veteran who recently deceased, please contact the Last Post Fund. Toll-Free 1 800 465-7113
In the case of a Veteran with a spouse or dependent children (or both), the combined assets of the couple are considered, excluding the following:
- A base amount of $36, 310 (raised from $12,015 on October 1st, 2016)
- $700 per dependent child
- The family house and vehicle
- Income received during the month of death
On top of Vigier's volunteer work with the Last Post Fund, Vigier works in Investor Relations for HART Legal. HART Legal now has sixteen law firms throughout North America.
