Shipped: Help Veterans find relevant benefits
As of 2018, only 18% of Canadian Veterans were receiving benefits offered by Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC). There was a clear need to better connect Veterans and their families with the benefits that VAC offers.
For the past year, a team made up of both CDS and VAC staff have worked together to build a benefits finder where Veterans can discover relevant benefits for their specific needs.
In April of 2019, the new “Find benefits and services” went live!
