The Reduction of Canadian Forces Members' Disability Benefits - A Position Paper

This position paper is predicated upon facts known to the Equitas Society in April 2012 which prompt our reaching the conclusion that specific changes are required to the New Veterans Charter [NVC] in order to ensure that disabled Canadian Forces members receive equal, life-long benefits consistent with the standard that the majority of Canadian workers receive under existing, applicable workers’ compensation programs. These changes are required in a timely manner to accommodate disabled members who have recently returned from the Afghan War and all changes to the NVC need to apply to members who have made disability claims dating back to April 2006.
