Latest information about VRAB operations affected by #COVID19
COVID-19 has had an impact on the services provided by VRAB such as the postponement of Review Hearings until further notice. This was a very difficult decision, but these are unprecedented times. We are following best practices for the health and safety of all Canadians provided by the Chief Medical Health Officer of Canada to do our part to prevent further spread of the virus.

We are working diligently to determine possible solutions, other than in-person Hearings, that will help to manage this important service from our homes.

We understand that Veterans, CAF and RCMP members and their families rely on us to make decisions in a timely manner. VRAB is exploring options to ensure Veterans and their families receive entitlement to disability benefits for service-related conditions.

We appreciate your patience and support throughout this challenging time. May you and yours stay safe and healthy as we continue to watch COVID-19 evolve. We will get through this together.
