OTTAWA – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has made public the new mandate letters of the six ministers that were shuffled into new roles in the Aug. 28 cabinet shuffle.

Stitching together Defence, Veterans’ departments

Seamus O’Regan, as minister of veterans affairs and associate minister of defence, has been mandated to work with Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan to “close the seam” between the two departments and make public its plans to get there. The cohesion of the two departments was referenced in the previous mandate letters for both files, but in less specific language.

He has also been tasked with re-establishing lifelong pensions as an option for injured veterans; increase the veteran survivor’s pension amount from 50 per cent to 70 per cent; improve the application process and delivery of current benefits; and create a research centre focused on mental health.

There's that phrase "option of a lifelong pension".
