Description & Services
Description of service(s) Our mandate stems from laws and regulations. Among the more significant is the Department of Veterans Affairs Act, which charges the Minister of Veterans Affairs with the following responsibilities:  
 
"the care, treatment, or re-establishment in civil life of any person who served in the Canadian Forces or merchant navy or in the naval, army or air forces or merchant navies of Her Majesty, of any person who has otherwise engaged in pursuits relating to war, and of any other person designated ... and the care of the dependants or survivors of any person referred to ..."  
The Department meets its responsibilities through its various programs. Programs for disability pensions, veterans allowances, pension advocacy, health care and commemoration provide compensation for hardships arising from disabilities and lost economic opportunities, innovative health and social services, professional legal assistance and recognition of the achievements and sacrifices of Canadians during periods of war and peace, including peacekeeping operations.  
 
We provide services to a highly diverse clientele which reflect the remarkable breadth of Canada's contributions to world peace. Our clients include:  
 
Armed Forces and Merchant Navy veterans who served during the First World War, Second World War or Korean War.  
Canadian Forces veterans, and in certain cases, current members of the Canadian Forces, including those who served in Special Duty Areas and in peacekeeping.  
Allied veterans who lived in Canada prior to periods of war.  
Certain civilians who are entitled to benefits because of their war time services.  
Former, and in certain cases, serving members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.  
Survivors and dependents of the foregoing groups.  
Veterans Affairs Canada also reaches out to all Canadians as well as the world community through our Canada Remembers Program, designed to honour and enhance the remembrance of all those who served Canada in the quest for peace.
