The Veterans Services Network of the Royal Canadian Legion advocates on behalf of veterans to guarantee they reap the rewards they are entitled to. We provide support and instruction on procedures that can be difficult to understand.
Whether or not you are a Legion member, the Legion’s Veterans Services Network is made up of volunteer Branch Service Officers and Professional Command Service Officers who offer free support at all phases of the handicap claim process.
What we do to help
At the grass-root level, Legion Branch Service Officers are the ears and eyes of the Veterans Services Network, and they are typically the first to interact with Veterans and their families. Branch Service Officers assist Veterans by finding those who have unfulfilled healthcare needs and who may be eligible for VAC services and then referring them to Command Service Officers.
Professional Command Service Officers of the Legion provide assistance at the provincial and national levels, including:
- Information and guidance on the VAC services and incentives that are offered.
- Assistance with handicap claim preparation and filing
- Support with the claims process, from the first petition to the Veterans Review and Appeal Board’s Request for Reconsideration.
- Advice from a specialist and support in obtaining other services and advantages
Whether or not you are a Legion member, the services covered by Professional Command Legion Service Officers are voluntary. Our job as a representative is enshrined in law.
The Legion also supports and supports members of the Canadian Armed Forces, RCMP, and their families who are still working.
Inquire for support
Please feel free to contact a Legion Professional Command Service Officer for details on programs and services that you may be qualified for, as well as for help with the Veterans Affairs Canada disability application or appeals process.
