About the fund

The Walter Harris Callow Foundation was established to honour the legacy of Walter Callow, a humanitarian and veteran of the First world War who invented the first wheelchair bus in Canada to serve the needs of veterans confined to Camp Hill Hospital in Halifax, Nova Scotia. For more than 70 years, Callow Wheelchair Buses provided service to veterans and others with mobility challenges. Today the Foundation continues to support veterans, military, RCMP and their families by directing proceeds to the Foundation to their highest priority needs.


To further Walter Callow's legacy to support veterans, military, RCMP and their families in becoming engaged citizens in our society.
