With the release of the 2017 federal budget, the deputy minister of Veteran Affairs is looking forward to implementing measures to better take care of Canada's veterans.
The most recent budget is significant, said the deputy, Walt Natynczyk.
"It's not the same amount of money, but this budget is about the well being of veterans. Often we focus on the money, but we've found that when a veteran has something to do the veteran is happier with their retirement.
I call it the GI bill. It's a benefit for all members of the Canadian Armed forces beginning April 1, 2018, that allows them access to up to $40,000 for education after six years of service and up to $80,000 for education after 12 years of service."
