E-petitions Veterans ID Card

Post by Guest on Wed 19 Jul 2017, 16:48


The Petition is open for signature until October 19, 2017, at 11:16 a.m. (EDT)

Petition Details:


Since the cancellation of the NDI 75 Certificate of service card Veterans have insufficient means to show proof of service to Canada in the Canadian Armed Forces;

There is currently no standard identification card issued to Veterans upon an honourably release from the Canadian Armed Forces; and

In 2012, the Veterans Ombudsman released a report titled "Honouring and Connecting with Canada’s Veterans: a National Veterans Identification Card" that contained recommendations and guidance on the creation of a National Veterans Identification Card and that those recommendations have yet to be implemented.

We, the undersigned, Citizens and Veterans of Canada, call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to call upon the Minister of Veterans Affairs and the Minister of National Defense to create and implement a National Veterans Identification Card by no later than November 10, 2018, and fully implement the recommendations made by the Veterans Ombudsman in his 2012 Report "Honouring and Connecting with Canada’s Veterans: a National Veterans Identification Card". This card should be a contact-type smart ID card containing the following features: the person’s element and the word Veteran, photo, first, middle and last name, rank, dates served, date of birth, blood type, Veterans Affairs Canada “K" number, and a signature block, and contain chip technology for the storage of key information relating to the cardholder.

In doing so, the Government of Canada will help to restore the pride and dignity of those who served Canada so valiantly during their service.
