Statement from the Veterans Ombudsman

May 11, 2020

I’d like to announce that I have decided to pursue other challenges and this Friday will be my last in service as Veterans Ombudsman. 

My experience as Ombudsman has been rich and one that I am grateful for.  I am particularly grateful for the opportunity to have met and engaged with Veterans and their families across Canada and to have worked and collaborated with a number of excellent Veterans organizations and committed individuals who continue to do great work on behalf and in support of our Veterans. I have also very much appreciated the advice and counsel I have received from a number of individual Veterans, family members, passionate researchers and Veterans advocates whose voices, thoughts and ideas have shaped the work of our office. I would especially like to acknowledge and thank the committed members of the Office of the Veterans Ombudsman Advisory Council for the excellent advice they have given me and for the continued support I know they will provide to the Office.

In closing I would like to thank the highly dedicated team of individuals in the Office of the Veterans Ombudsman – individuals who continue to work hard to advance fairness for Veterans and their families each and every day. I know you will continue to do your best to ensure fair outcomes for Veterans.
