Honouring our Veterans means more than commemorating the past. It means giving them a high standard of service where and when they need it. It means hiring more frontline staff to ensure Veterans and their families are being supported.
Veterans and their families have earned the respect and gratitude of all Canadians. The Government of Canada is committed to ensuring that our Veterans receive all the benefits they are entitled to for their service to Canada.
Canadians take pride in their rich history and military heritage and a central responsibility of Veterans Affairs Canada is to pay tribute to the selfless service and contributions of Canada’s Veterans, and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
Families are an integral part of Veterans’ well-being and this is why we are enhancing and expanding programs and services that focus on not only the Veterans, but their families too. Supporting families is supporting Veterans. The Veteran Family Program will offer that support when a Veteran transitions to post-military life.
Canada and the United States share strong ties as old as our countries themselves—from deep family relations to businesses that work back and forth across the border, to the world’s most important trade relationship
