6 November 2023 – Oromocto, New Brunswick – Veterans Affairs Canada

The Government of Canada is committed to modernizing its workplaces so that public servants are better able to provide critical services to Canadians.

As Veterans’ Week begins, the Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Veterans Affairs Canada and Jenica Atwin, Member of Parliament for Fredericton, visited the Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) office in Oromocto and announced the completion of renovations.

Veterans and their families rely on services provided through local area offices across the country.

These renovations expanded the reception area, waiting room, and two additional, more functional interview rooms, to equip VAC staff with the resources they need to serve the needs of more than 6,000 clients.

Through this investment, VAC will continue to deliver services to Veterans, still-serving CAF and RCMP members, and their families, ensuring they have access to targeted services and benefits to improve their well-being.


“Veterans and their families will benefit from these new improvements to the Oromocto area office, which supports our goal to provide them with high-quality services. By enhancing local facilities, we will continue to be there for Canada’s Veterans, former RCMP members, their families, and caregivers.”
The Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Veterans Affairs and Associate Minister of National Defence

“The renovations and reopening of the Veterans Affairs Canada office in Oromocto is a testament to our engagement to providing the highest quality service to Veterans in New Brunswick. The office will continue to provide crucial, in-person support to Veterans and their families so they can access the benefits and services they deserve.”
Jenica Atwin, Member of Parliament for Fredericton
