Toronto, ON - July 1, 2021, Lifemark Health Group (Lifemark) is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a multi-year contract to deliver Rehabilitation Services and Vocational Assistance to Veterans and their families on behalf of Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC). 

The proposal was supported by a joint venture with WCG International Consultants Ltd. (WCG), a leader in the development and delivery of employment and rehabilitation services.
