Veterans Outside Canada

Our Professional Command Legion Service Officers can assist Veterans who live outside Canada; free of charge, whether or not you are a member of the Legion.

We work with VAC Foreign Countries Operations (FCO) who is responsible for delivering benefits and services to eligible Veterans and their families who live or vacation outside of Canada.

The two main benefits available while you are away from Canada are the War Veterans Allowance (WVA) and the Disability Pension under the Pension Act.

If you live outside Canada, you may qualify for the following services under the New Veterans Charter:

  • Rehabilitation;
  • Job placement assistance;
  • Group health insurance; and
  • Disability award.
