Roundtable to focus on New Veterans Charter

A roundtable discussion for Canadian Forces members, veterans and the public will be held Feb. 23 in Brandon, hosted by Brandon-Souris Conservative MP Larry Maguire.

The goal of the event is to seek recommendations in connection with the federal government’s ongoing review of the New Veterans Charter.

“I want to hear what people are saying … but I also want them to know what the government has done and straighten out some of the misinformation that’s been out there,” Maguire said. “This was a priority for me during the election campaign, it was a priority as soon as I got to Ottawa.”

Edmonton Centre Conservative MP Laurie Hawn, a member of the veterans affairs committee and RCAF veteran, will also be in attendance.

The federal government’s review of the New Veterans Charter includes an examination of the enhancements that have been made to it to date, with a special focus placed on how best to respond to the needs of the most seriously injured service members and veterans, offer support for families and effectively deliver programs by Veterans Affairs Canada.

Recommendations put forward by participants at the Brandon-Souris roundtable will be presented to the federal government and members of the House of Commons veterans affairs committee.

The event will be held Sunday, Feb. 23, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Canad Inns, Ambassador Room B.

The roundtable is open to everyone, but interested participants are requested to register by either emailing Larry.Maguire@parl.gc.ca or calling 204-726-7600.
