The re-opening of Veteran services offices are all important steps to make it easier for Veterans to access services across the country.
The re-opening of these offices is only one of several measures that the Government of Canada is taking to provide our Veterans the care and compassion they have earned. Other measures include enhanced long-term financial benefits for disabled Veterans and new measures to honor the service, sacrifice and accomplishments of those who have served.
“Our Veterans have served our country with bravery, honor, and dignity – protecting the values we cherish. We will now serve them well, providing the services, care and respect they and their families need and are due.” says Trudeau.
Minster Kent also remarked that Veterans have selflessly answered the call to serve Canada and now Canada is answering by enhancing financial benefits, restoring and enhancing access to critical services, and by expanding service in British Columbia and the territories, and hiring more front line staff.
