Il y a eu des améliorations mais est-ce suffisant?

Ottawa (Ontario) - Le 27 février 2017

Mon objectif est de m’assurer que tous les vétérans reçoivent un traitement équitable. Nous faisons des recommandations, lesquelles résultent de données probantes que nous recueillons, qui visent à améliorer la qualité de vie des vétérans et de leur famille. Aujourd’hui, j’ai publié une mise à jour de toutes les recommandations faites par mon bureau depuis sa création. Jusqu’à maintenant, nous avons proposé 57 recommandations. Parmi celles-ci, 37 ont été mises en œuvre dans leur entièreté ou de façon partielle par le gouvernement; ce qui en laisse encore une vingtaine à examiner.

Le gouvernement a progressé en ce qui a trait au traitement des enjeux liés aux vétérans. Par exemple, certaines des annonces résultant de son budget de 2016, particulièrement celle ayant trait à l’augmentation de l’allocation pour perte de revenus (APR), qui s’élèvera à 90 pour cent de la solde avant libération, et celle concernant la hausse de l’indemnité d’invalidité à 360 000 $, auront des répercussions positives sur la vie de nombreux vétérans et de leur famille.

Mais cela suffira-t-il? Non. Il faudra en faire plus.

Je vous encourage donc à lire les dernières mises à jour sur le statut de mes recommandations.

Le Budget 2017 offre au gouvernement l’occasion idéale pour continuer d’aller de l’avant, donc assurons-nous de le suivre de près. Pour ma part, je l’aurai à l’œil!

Again, No ain't done enough, and as we want the PA to come back, people are saying, nope Not gonna happen all tax free stuff is Gone.. But wait, since they are bringing in a NEW caregivers relief benefit, that is paid directly to the caregiver of $1000 a month, how is it, that they can go, Ohh an we'll make it NON-TAXABLE yet any funds for veterans TAX ALL THAT MONEY If they can make non-taxable funds available to caregivers, they sure the hell can make it non-taxable for us Veterans.

As Per what 1oldsailr said.. "1oldsailr said: I have a question.Why is is that veterans who are in the same trade never seem to be treated the same? For instance, 500 hundred people who worked as a Supply Tech get pensions for their back. The military did a study and found Supply Techs end up with more back problems than other trades. Another Supply Tech who just was released on a medical for a back problem applies to D.V.A. for a pension and gets denied." Myself I am a supply tech, and as well I have back problems, and shoulder, guess when I finally get the Diagnoses of it, and apply I know I have the upmost 100% knowledge it'll be denied, why cause these problems are caused by OVERUSE, and DAMAGE OVER TIME, not from 1 concrete incident/accident whichever, they are DoT injuries.. So, No they like 1oldsailr said, they should have injuries related to trade, and if your in trade A and have injury as per the study or list, Enough said, Favorable Decision, again just how much of a disability, to be determined. Now, you actually said in your Live facebook event something about that, injuries applicable to trade.. If that does come about, and implemented, can we who have had previously denied decisions, which would now be considered a trade injury, and ran out of appeals actually get the chance to get those claims re-looked at. And considered as a trade Injury.???

Another Supply Tech who just was released on a medical for a back problem applies to D.V.A. for a pension and gets denied. Why can't they look at the other pensions awarded and award the new one on the basis from the ones already submitted? They would only need an assessment to see what amount of disability they have. Instead, they make you jump through the hoops and if an individual doesn't know how to express his injury with a pen, he is screwed. Just saying

I have been dealing with VAC for over a year now trying to get an assessment done, 16 weeks turned into 9 months and now that they have made me go see another doctor about my condition they are telling me it will be another 6 months. So it will be going on 15 months to finally get a decision, anyone else having these issues?

Well the so called 90% level raise came after they dropped Veterans down to Pte (T) from CPL. That is not a pay raise. It needs to be fixed!!

If the NVC are indeed better than the PA, why has there been no PA veterans requesting to be placed under the NVC, whereas every NVC vet would love to be under the PA?

it's pretty sad that a vet has to fight and prove they were injured in service to their country ,,10,15 or 20 years or they die before getting what they are owed

Absolutely not!! We have lost more soldiers to suicide post Afghanistan then we did in combat. That in itself should be your answer. Medications are no longer funded, unacceptable wait times for VA and now money being taken away! Our government leaps to aid of people affected by the outcome of war but not for our own soldiers! What a slap in the face to our honoured soldiers and to all Canadians.

Veterans Affairs is not doing enough. Cutting the medical marijuana program that has helped so many families have a normal life by 70%. Is this the stuff your talking about? Or are you talking about the extended delays in claims? Veterans Affairs Canada has made my PTSD symptoms much worse then ever before due to their lack of care. I was medically released and waited 10 months to be approved to see a doctor for a condition I was treated for for the last 10 years of my career. Completely unacceptable! Then VAC had me arrested and locked up in prison over a phone call. That must be the great care you talk about! Stop the lies! Tell Canadians the truth about what VAC does to not help veterans including trying to put them in our penitentiary system. Does prison sound like a good treatment option for a veteran with PTSD? VAC is NOT doing enough!

This government has not even come close to doing what they promised to Veterans.

Hardly anything has been done. Except for getting veterans even more frustrated and distrusting your actions has much has the goverment ones.

No this is not real progress. Canadian Veterans under the NVC are at a distinct financial disadvantage as all our allowances LTD...PIA ...etc are taxable
