I am proud of the work our armed forces have done for our country, and we must ensure that our veterans are properly repaid when they return home.
Our government will improve support for veterans transitioning to post-military life with the new Canadian Armed Forces Transition Group, and helping veterans find work with the new Education and Training benefit.
We’ve also announced tax relief measures for Canadian Armed Forces personnel deployed abroad on named operations, and the tax relief will be applied retroactively from January 1st 2017.
To ensure that our veterans can access their improved resources, we’ve reopened all 9 Veterans Affairs offices that were closed by the previous Conservative government, opened an additional new office, and increased services to veterans in the North.
Our government will make sure that our veterans get the support and compensation that they deserve.
