To simplify the process for Veterans and expedite decision making, Veterans Affairs Canada case managers were given the responsibility to make medical/psychosocial decisions for Rehabilitation Program participants and to properly document these decisions.

In 2012, Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) and Service Canada entered into a Partnership whereby Service Canada would use their web, in-person and telephone services to provide general information on VAC’s benefits and services to individuals who visit Service Canada’s website, visit a Service Canada Centre or call VAC’s toll-free line. In addition, Service Canada would accept and review applications for the Disability Benefits Program and the Veterans Independence Program (VIP). The intention of the Partnership was that Veterans would have broader access to VAC’s services on the web, in-person and on the phone. By having Service Canada answer general inquiries on VAC’s behalf, it was expected that VAC would be able to re-focus their resources on more complex cases.
