We will do more to support the families of Canada’s veterans.
Veterans have given years of their lives in service to Canada. So have their families.
We will provide greater education, counselling, and training for families who are providing care and support to veterans living with physical and/or mental health issues as a result of their service. We will also end the time limit for surviving spouses to apply for vocational rehabilitation and assistance services. Our investment of $100 million each year will expand the circle of support for veterans’ families.
