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 ongoing declared pandemic of COVID-19, 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. We encourage you to stay home and follow the directions of local health authorities.

The best way to reach us is through My VAC Account secure messaging, or by calling us at 1-866-522-2122. If your inquiry is not urgent, we ask that you consider contacting us at a later time, so we can focus on the most urgent needs. Our staff are available, working remotely and prioritizing getting benefits to Veterans in greatest need.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during these times. For more information, please visit our Information for Veterans page.
