Legion responds to Office of the Veterans Ombudsman report
On January 19, the Legion Dominion President released the following statement in support of the Veterans Ombudsman’s report:
“The Royal Canadian Legion supports all recommendations released in the Office of the Veterans Ombudsman’s report. Of particular note, we ask Veterans Affairs Canada to push for legislative and financial changes to ensure that family members including former spouses, survivors and dependent children, can access federally funded mental health care when their illness is related to the conditions of a Veteran’s service. This should happen whether or not the Veteran is in treatment. We believe mental health care must extend to family members in their own right who provide a crucial support system for our Veterans.”
–Thomas D. Irvine, CD, Dominion President, The Royal Canadian Legion
