Welcome to Veterans Affairs Canada

If you are a current or former member of the CAF or RCMP, or a family member, we have targeted services and benefits to improve your well-being.

COVID-19 Update

Due to the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), you can continue to connect with us through My VAC Account secure messaging or by calling us at 1-866-522-2122. Client and visitor access to our area offices is suspended until further notice. Additionally, all in person Service Canada Centres are temporarily closed to the public until further notice.

For more information on impacts to our services, please visit our Information for Veterans page.

For more information on impacts to our commemorative programs, services and activities, please visit our Remembrance page.

Trouble calling VAC?

If you call VAC and are unable to get through, it may be due to the higher-than-normal number of calls being made to toll-free numbers during COVID-19. While VAC lines are fully operational, the strain on Canada’s telephone network may prevent your call from being connected to VAC, even if there are agents available.

This situation is unfortunately beyond our control. We apologize for any inconvenience and encourage you to keep trying. You may want to use My VAC Account secure messaging as an alternative.
