Labour Disruption / Perturbation du travail - VAC

Dear stakeholders,

As you may be aware, the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) bargaining groups representing 159,000 public servants, including many Veterans Affairs Canada employees, are officially on strike today.

The Government is making every effort to ensure that any strike action is as short as possible. While the government will maintain all essential services for Canadians, there could be impacts on access and timeliness. It is difficult to assess what the impacts of a labour disruption might be.

Similar to other Government of Canada service Departments, Veterans Affairs Canada has plans in place to provide Veterans, their families and our key stakeholders with timely information on impacts to services, as well as an understanding of what essential services remain available during a strike.

For the latest information on impacts to services, a web page will be maintained with links to departmental information on possible service disruptions. We will be updating this content on a regular basis.

In addition, we will send out regular emails updating you on the status of the labour disruption and how Veterans’ services and benefits may be impacted. We encourage you to share this information with those in your community.
