LETTER: Help available for veterans

Veterans Affairs minister points out help available for all veterans leaving Canadian Forces

Our government believes it is important to remind Canadian veterans and their families about the various benefits and supports available to them if they are in need. Benefits like thousands of dollars of monthly financial income for those veterans who are seriously injured or career transition services that help a veteran apply their world class experience and training to a civilian career.

Without direct advertising, veterans will never know about the benefits and programs at Veterans Affairs. Veterans simply won’t know that they can apply their experience earned during their time in the Canadian Armed Forces towards a private sector career with assistance from the federal government.

Sometimes veterans can leave the Forces and have no need for benefits for five, 10 or 15 years only to have a service condition impact their ability to function later in life.

Our job is to remind them that support is indeed available, especially when it comes to transitioning from the Canadian Armed Forces to a civilian career.

If you know someone who has served in the Canadian Armed Forces, after thanking them for their service you should make sure they read this note and visit our websiteveterans.gc.ca.

Canadian veterans need to know about the programs and supports available to them and with your support we will make sure they get the message.

Julian Fantino, Minister of Veterans Affairs
