New and Enhanced Benefits and Services For Veterans

Over the years, a patchwork system made it more complicated for Veterans to get the support they need. We are changing that. We are overhauling our service delivery model so Veterans and their families can more easily learn about and access the programs, benefits, and services that are available to them. As we transform how we deliver services to Veterans, we are making sure we get these services right.

On April 1, 2018, our government implemented a series of meaningful changes to better support Canada’s Veterans and their families. As announced in Budget 2017, we have made the following improvements to Veterans programming and services:

o A new Veterans’ Education and Training Benefit

o A new Caregiver Recognition Benefit

o Expanded access to the Military Family Resource Centres

o A redesigned Career Transition Services Program

o Removal of Time Limits for Rehabilitation Services and Vocational Assistance Program

o A new Veteran and Family Well-Being Fund

o A new Veteran Emergency Fund

o A new Centre of Excellence on PTSD and mental health conditions
