We are very fortunate that a representative from Veterans Affairs Canada usually visits our Branch every second month. Normally it is the fourth Wednesday of the month from 9:30 am – 11:00.
The representative is there for any Veteran, not just Legion Members. Anyone wishing to speak with them can drop by.
Next visit will be - Wednesday Sep 18. No visit in July due to summer holidays.
Countless veterans are currently suffering from life-threatening illnesses that are a result of exposure to asbestos, a material that was commonly used in hundreds of military applications, products, and ships because of its resistance to fire. The Canadian Veterans Advocacy web page has links and resources regarding mesothelioma and other veterans issues. Feel free to click here to connect to their website.
