Today, Minister Fantino is pleased to announce the appointment of Leonard M. Hall of Langley, British Columbia, to the Veterans Review and Appeal Board (VRAB or Board). Mr. Hall brings 31 years of Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) service to his role as a member of the Board.
This appointment was made by the Governor in Council through the Board’s merit-based selection process. With this appointment, Minister Fantino is continuing to honour the Government’s commitment to appoint more members with military, policing and medical backgrounds to the Board.
Leonard M. Hall is appointed for a three-year term. Mr. Hall spent 31 years with the RCMP in law enforcement, police policy, and training and administration before retiring in 2009. Since then, he has designed an executive development program for the Canada Border Services Agency and is currently the president of a company that trains public safety officials internationally in ethics and decision-making. Mr. Hall holds a Bachelor of Commerce from St. Mary’s University and a Master of Arts in Leadership and Training from Royal Roads University.
VRAB provides Veterans, Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) and RCMP members, and their families, with an independent appeal program for disability benefits decisions made by Veterans Affairs Canada.
