Veterans Review and Appeal Board
The Veterans Review and Appeal Board is an independent administrative tribunal that provides an avenue of appeal for disability benefits decisions made by Veterans Affairs Canada. Our mission is to provide timely, respectful hearings and fair, plain-language decisions to Veterans, Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) and Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) members, and their families.
We are in the process of moving our services and information to Canada.ca.
Our current Veterans Review and Appeal Board website will remain available until the move to Canada.ca is complete.
