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 a federal institution that is part of the Veterans Affairs portfolio, and operate independently from Veterans Affairs Canada.
