Veterans Affairs committee  And Newfoundland, sorry.

June 7th, 2018Committee meeting

Gen (Ret'd) Walter Natynczyk

Veterans Affairs committee  We're trying to up the game of 4,000 mental health practitioners.

June 7th, 2018Committee meeting

Gen (Ret'd) Walter Natynczyk

Veterans Affairs committee  This is just to say that for some of these folks, it's a question of when they want to present. For some of them who are coming forward for the first time—even though they're World War II or Korean War vets, they're coming forward for the first time—especially for a mental heal

June 7th, 2018Committee meeting

Gen (Ret'd) Walter Natynczyk

Veterans Affairs committee  I just want to reinforce what the minister indicated. You'll be aware that the department runs 10 operational stress injury clinics coast to coast, which are outpatient. In Ste. Anne's Hospital in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Montreal, we have a residential program, and we fund veter

June 7th, 2018Committee meeting

Gen (Ret'd) Walter Natynczyk

Veterans Affairs committee  We can't put those amounts in until they're approved. We can't put any of the pension for life funds into the plans until they've been legislated and we have the Treasury Board submissions. Then we put them in following those approvals.

June 7th, 2018Committee meeting

Gen (Ret'd) Walter Natynczyk

Veterans Affairs committee  Can I just add, and say exactly with regard to the pension for life, that now we will have that monthly connection between the department and those new Veterans Charter veterans. For those under the old Pension Act prior to April 1, 2006, we would know about your 98-year-old ve

June 7th, 2018Committee meeting

Gen (Ret'd) Walter Natynczyk

Veterans Affairs committee  I don't have that detail with me, but our officials who are appearing right afterwards will have that information.

June 7th, 2018Committee meeting

Gen (Ret'd) Walter Natynczyk

Veterans Affairs committee  Sir, again, the detail can be provided by the officials right after me. With this pension for life, we're kind of doing what we've done for the education and training benefit and the career transition benefit, which is leveraging both the face-to-face contact and digital. We're

June 7th, 2018Committee meeting

Gen (Ret'd) Walter Natynczyk

Veterans Affairs committee  It's an increase in the amount of money going out the door to veterans, especially those with serious injuries and those who were injured earlier in their careers.

June 7th, 2018Committee meeting

Gen (Ret'd) Walter Natynczyk

Veterans Affairs committee  Again, I don't want to go outside of my lane, having worn the uniform before. It's General Vance's lane, but I would say that what he's coming to grips with is the fact that, for some illnesses and injuries—and you have a medical background—the access to medical care, if you're o

June 7th, 2018Committee meeting

Gen (Ret'd) Walter Natynczyk

Veterans Affairs committee  I can also add that I appreciate the work you are doing in studying aboriginal veterans' issues, especially as many of our veterans, after extraordinary service in the Canadian Armed Forces, return to their communities which are often remote, and therefore the difficulty of provi

June 7th, 2018Committee meeting

Gen (Ret'd) Walter Natynczyk

Veterans Affairs committee  What's terrific is the fact that veterans are getting over the stigma and are coming forward and asking for help. To see upwards of 20% to 30% more veterans coming forward and presenting is terrific. We're in a catch-up game. We're trying to catch up, and that's where the backlo

June 7th, 2018Committee meeting

Gen (Ret'd) Walter Natynczyk

Veterans Affairs committee  Right. We're looking for the right Canadians to be able to bring into the front offices. I was just in Brandon and Shilo last week, again looking for folks to be able to serve in Brandon and on Base Shilo with the right skills. However, the other thing we've learned just over

June 7th, 2018Committee meeting

Gen (Ret'd) Walter Natynczyk

Veterans Affairs committee  That's correct, Minister. In some cases, we're waiting for the veteran to determine who will be the caregiver, and then we get the appropriate information—banking information—so that the benefit goes directly to that caregiver. We're in a transition in that regard.

June 7th, 2018Committee meeting

General

Veterans Affairs committee  Thanks for the question, Madam, which really focuses on the SISIP program in the Canadian Armed Forces. Again, under the Veterans Act, the minister is responsible for those veterans who have an injury attributable to service. Therefore, as of April 1, 2019, we'll be working with
