"the BPA Head Office level in Charlottetown." Why in the hell doesn't THAT surprise me!!!"
I never had to deal with the BPA H.O.... But maybe their in the same BUILDING as VAC!
That was my experience with a local BPA and VAC D.O. years ago. Right down the hall and not very soundproof.
Very un-nerving to say the least. pinger.

I AM STILL WAITING FOR RECONSIDERATION>>>it will be over a year when I started the ball moving on my file. Combined with this and that and other request, still waiting for acceptance to  something that seems to be black and white to me has become like what the F is going on here.  
Time to find a good receipt for stewing while I continue to wait.

Are you due for a reassessment Dannypaj as you can go that route for the same thing?

I am at the final stage before the reconsideration.  
I received a one page letter stating the typical and it is going to be reviewed with the additional evidence, prior to going to the board.
It also states that the reconsideration will be conducted by the same board members, that being if they "still hold office" can be and if not replaced with someone new.
Every day I go through my file and I beat myself up.
Should I of been more vocal or less reliant on the benefit of the doubt? IDK, I just want this to end fairly.  
It feels like there is a blockade and I WILL push through it, there is no stopping the pen.

So, basically they will do a review before going into a full blown review....according to the letter I received. Confused?

Good luck with your hearing. How long have you been waiting for this? I requested one last year, and was told it can several years to get it.

A reconsideration is supposed to be done in a certain time frame , I had one done several years ago and for that reason I can not remember how long it took for a decision. However if the reconsideration is unsuccessful you can get current medical reports , if things have worsened and have a reassessment done at the two year point from your last reassessment unless they are not done every two years anymore.

Just doing a little research and here is something I found that may be useful in my case ( A precedence).

Maybe I need an updated medical?

A Legion rep told me VA has awarded in the past under similar circumstances.

As for wait times...
A friend of mine told me yesterday that a large number of GST cheques were not processed (hers included), and that when she asked her gov. friend about it she was told gov. employees were being sacked across country so Harper could say he balanced the budget before re-election.
Prepare for a long wait for pretty much everything.


Can someone send me real documentation as I want to be prepared and ready for anything. I know I was wronged and I will right a wrong!

This private is not being pushed around and bullied any longer by GOC and VRAB.....benefit of the doubt, what a monkey suit process.....

Dealing with VRAB is often worse than VAC itself, since they are completely unanswerable to anyone. They can literally tell a veteran that they are denying them benefits, because they don't like their face, and the Veteran is utterly powerless. The minister cannot change their decision. The courts can only tell the same board members to look at the case again. The ombudsmen can write reports until he is blue in the face, but VRAB won't be forced to change.

So any Veteran, regardless of the strength of their medical evidence, is put through undue stress when having to deal with VRAB. I've had a expert medical opinion from an orthopedic surgeon, called speculative at best, and that my consequential disability was merely a coincidence. I've also had them minimize another claim, by stating that I had pre-existing conditions, and accidents before joining the Navy, without providing any evidence to back up their claims, because they were lies.

Danny. The NVC regulations support this

"50. For the purposes of subsection 45(1) of the Act, a member or veteran is presumed, in the absence of evidence to the contrary, to have established that an injury or disease is a service-related injury or disease, or a non-service-related injury or disease that was aggravated by service, if it is demonstrated that the injury or disease or its aggravation was incurred in the course of

(d) the transportation of the member or veteran while on authorized leave by any means authorized by a military authority, other than public transportation, between the place at which the member or veteran normally performed duties and the place at which the member or veteran was to take leave or a place at which public transportation was available;"

Since you are technically on leave, whenever you are not at work, you are deemed covered by the NVC, while on your way to and from work, unless you are using public transportation at the time of the injury, (most likely their compensation would be higher anyways)

I am at the point that I lost all respect for Veterans Affairs Canada.  
What does opening new offices do????     NOTHING
I now just hang up the phone when disrespected by VAC on their useless 1-800-help lines.
I was respectful and proud at one point in my life, but being beating down by VAC, well, you can make your up your own conclusions.

Sent: UTC 2016-07-13 12:09 (THROUGH MY VAC ACCOUNT TODAY)

What a frustrating system.
I am still waiting for an answer and it has been over a year
(more accurately, since my 3b medical release in 2003)
VAC, my next step will be to go live and public & I'll send my
entire file to all the Media outlets.
I am tired of being treated like a third class citizen.
Approve me or deny me, so I can move on with my life without
a VAC decision hanging over my head.

UTC 2014-12-02 11:08  FIRST POINT OF CONTACT WITH VAC REFRENCE MY RECONSIDERATION

I have further evidence that was not submitted to the board of
review that is beneficial to my appeal!

Submit any new evidence asap.   And make note and keep copies of what you sent them. Good luck!  I am waiting 26 weeks now on a decision on a disability app. I have been told by VAC they are way behind and are currently reviewing disability applications that were submitted from mid November of 2015.
