More support for Veterans

Published on September 22, 2019

Canada’s Veterans are heroes. They dedicated their lives to protecting us. It's time for them to get ahead!

A Conservative government will:

  • Enshrine, in legislation, a Military Covenant between the Government of Canada and all Canada’s Veterans. This will guarantee that every Veteran is treated with respect and is provided services in a timely manner. 
  • Clear the current backlog of Veterans’ benefit applications within 24 months. 
  • Create a reliable, dependable pension system that, unlike the Liberal status quo, is fair to Canada’s most disabled Veterans. 
  • Strengthen transition services to support discharged or retired Canadian Armed Forces members. 
  • Strike an independent inquiry to provide answers about Canadian Armed Forces members who were administered mefloquine. 
  • Provide more service dogs to Canadian Veterans in their communities. 
  • Put vital commemoration projects, like the National Memorial for Canada’s War in Afghanistan, back on track.
