Mr. Speaker, I thank the ombudsman and his staff for their dedicated service and their very good report.
I always value his feedback. The report makes three key recommendations on items in my mandate. In budget 2016, we acted upon recommendations from this ombudsman to increase the disability award, expand access to the permanent impairment allowance, and increase the earnings loss benefit, all measures that the ombudsman was very supportive of.
We will continue to work through the recommendations and make things better for veterans and their families in this country.
