The Veterans Ombudsman Advisory Council was established to provide advice to the Veterans Ombudsman on issues related to his mandate. As Veterans’ representatives, council members assist in promoting the well-being of all Veterans by identifying emerging issues of importance to the Veteran community and providing advice to the Ombudsman on how to best approach those issues. In addition, council members help raise awareness of the Office and liaise with Veterans organizations so that they too can have a voice at the Advisory Council.
The Advisory Council consists of military and RCMP Veterans’ representatives, as well as professional advisors in fields of relevance to the work of the Office. There are also affiliate members who provide advice to the Ombudsman on a needs-basis. View the complete list of Council members.
