Veteran Affairs Canada has released the results of a full and thorough investigative process into allegations of inappropriate conversations with Veterans about MAiD in a report delivered to the Standing Committee on Veterans Affairs.
Canadians have many reasons to show gratitude to our Veterans. Their sacrifice has helped us enjoy the lives we live today. Recognizing these contributions, many Canadians are dedicated to commemorate Veterans and their service. This support is particularly evident during Veterans’ Week, when countless people volunteer their time and efforts to honour Canada’s Veterans.
The Honourable Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Veterans Affairs and Associate Minister of National Defence, today announced $43 million in funding over three years to maintain frontline staffing levels, including the Case Manager to Veteran ratio, and upgrade the tools Case Managers use – freeing up more time for them to work directly with Veterans.
On 6 June 1944, Canadians landed on Juno Beach as part of the D-Day invasion that marked a turning point for Allied forces during the Second World War. Since then, The Juno Beach Centre has become a place of remembrance and emotion for Veterans, their families, Canadians and French citizens. This iconic site must be preserved and respected, as it commemorates the Canadians who served their country and helped liberate France.
