Veterans Affairs Canada

Veterans Affairs Canada deeply values the contribution that Veterans have made to the development of our nation and we honour the sacrifices they have made in the defence of freedom and the pursuit of world peace. In expressing Canada's gratitude to them, we strive to exemplify many of the same principles which they represent – integrity, respect, service, commitment, accountability, and teamwork.

We are a federal institution that leads the Veterans Affairs portfolio.
