Question?

While the Committee cannot make a determination as to the legitimacy of these criticisms, the general impression that emerges is one of overall dissatisfaction with the relations between the Department and medically-released members and veterans.



What's the difference between a medically-released member and a veteran?

Hmmm, you kick someone out of the forces and call it a Medical release and leave them with VAC, the monster in the room.
And to be thrown out of your (gang, group, band, what ever you like to call it) because of a medical condition, of course there's dissatisfaction.

VAC has made significant efforts over the last decade to fight the perception that its employees had orders to systematically refuse first applications. This improvement was confirmed by Anthony S. of the Bureau of Pensions Advocates (How much danger pay was provided to link his name to this report),[/size]30 which represents free of charge approximately 95% of veterans who appear before the Veterans Review and Appeal Board

This is a noteworthy improvement that occurred in the last few years, but it will likely take some time to do away with the negative perception that has built up over a long period in the minds of many veterans.

I gotta rephrase that for you Danny.

There ain't no difference between a medically-released VETERAN and a veteran.

Don't want to go off topic here, but next April sure as heck beckons.
Talking the re-establishment of a PA.

I'm pretty sure we will be dis-appointed . . .

Definition of a Veteran:

Any former member of the Canadian Armed Forces who successfully underwent basic training and is honourably discharged.

They are many Veterans in Canada, but having Veterans status does not in itself qualify you for benefits under VAC.

Medically released Veterans on the other hand do qualify to apply for VAC benefits, that's the difference between the two.

Although it is well known that some Veterans who were not medically released and were honourably discharged do experience some disability related to their service after discharge, they have the same ability to apply for VAC benefits, but for the most part, it is the medically released ex serving members that are applying and receiving benefits from VAC.
