    Sexual Assault & Sexual Misconduct in the CF

    I find it interesting that people here and members of CAF/DND get to speculate/speak/comment on the continued effort for culture and administrative change when the ones who have been directly affected are pushed aside. This thread for example went missing and then when it came back years of...

    VRAB decision with an increase of my Total Disability Assessment (Election for Lump Sum)

    Hello, I have a question regarding a recent VRAB decision that results in an increase of my Total Disability Assessment. VRAB decision increased it by 7% and I have gone from 36 to 43% Total Disability Assessment. What PSC Lump Sum should I be expecting? Should it be the difference between my...

    CAF Sexual Misconduct PR War- Swerved Into a Mess Discussion

    No surprise and pretty much expected. The SMSRC seems to be picking up speed in its delivery and the upcoming zoom discussion on April 11 will be interesting. Curious if Lise Bourgon will be attending and ask for "more positive" stories from MST survivors to help recruiting efforts again...

    Shawn Ryan Show and CANSOF

    I remember attending a Leafs CAF night with ill and injured members and a retired Hillier walking in and asking me if I wanted to go to his breakfast speech the next morning with the Canucks. While sitting there with the players that morning Hillier began to show footage of Taliban fighters...

    Close to 1 Billion unspent

    I think it is time Veterans move beyond the Cap in Hand approach with the current LPC. The current wait times for initial disability applications is nothing short of gross incompetence and the BPA/VRAB appeals process is also far beyond its communicated "Timely Service" of 16 weeks from your...

    VAC wait times

    What is your point? I was providing information regarding a question about how they evaluate the levels and when. All legislation has criteria for reassessments and cancellations.

    VAC wait times

    You can view the criteria for how they establish what grade you might qualify for here.... https://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/about-vac/legislation-policies/policies/document/2828 VAC will not automatically evaluate you every year once you have qualified for Grade 3. This is a life long non...

    Veterans Affairs says worker ‘inappropriately’ discussed medically assisted death with veteran

    In recent times the politicians and corporations have begun to understand and use the value of the speaking point, constructed cliche above the actual realities of the people who are experiencing it directly. And many just eat it up. I was wondering what the actual story was when I saw that add...

    Veterans Affairs says worker ‘inappropriately’ discussed medically assisted death with veteran

    VAC has tendered and the new service provider started their contract last month. VAC sent letters in the summer and PCVRS sent letters in November regarding their taking over of Rehabilitation Services and the Vocational Assistance Program. This is a running theme and once again another stream...

    Veterans Affairs says worker ‘inappropriately’ discussed medically assisted death with veteran

    I worked for VAC from Sept 16 to Mar 18 in the Scarborough office. I was there as the funding project manager for IG Toronto but did have many interactions with CMs, VSAs, Disability Benefits adjudicators, and others. There were no specific files discussed but there were many questions about...

    Partners in Canadian Veterans Rehabilitation Services

    I do not think you are overreacting; it is another move towards an agency assuming authority over your situation. The rinse and repeat cycle is due to their inability to communicate and deliver competencies in many areas. I was a big proponent of VAC at one time but no longer am. I also think...

    Soldier On Grant Program - now $750

    Funding opportunities drop for the member/Veteran and yet the funding for external entities like TPL keeps rolling in the millions. The big corporate sports weeks are ok but do little to promote and enhance the actual programs that are doing the hard work.

    Decreased Earnings Capacity

    I was reviewing VAC financial benefits and read a little about the DEC designation within the Income Replacement benefit. I am wondering if anyone has personal experience with this benefit, did you/your CM initiate the application, what was the process like, types of screenings/questionnaires etc...

    Disgusting Display from a vet in Irving's Big Stop Restaurant

    My judgements are just fine. Maybe the woman standing up at the RD ceremony has mental health issues as well? Once again I find no difference between the two incidents.

    Afghan Interpreters, Others Fast-tracking to Canada

    The OC is for a body of work not for an individual act. You can nominate him for an MSN in my eyes. Otherwise lets talk about his history in the CAF and how he perpetuated the misogyny and dislike of anything other than heteronormative males. In my opinion he should be praciticing out of sight...
