I have the “Veterans Matter” app on my phone, but am not able to get the info that I used to get from it. Trying to find more info on my Uncle from Winnipeg [redacted due to violation of Rules of Engagement], through the app, but it will no longer function for me. I’d appreciate some help if you can.

I was wondering if I qualify for any benefits. I served in 1980 - 1983. I did peacekeeping in 82-83. Can I have someone reply - thank-you. Vince.

Hi Vince, This comment system leads to the team responsible for transparency and accountability work in the public service. We host datasets and records about many things, including historic statistics on Veterans, but we don't deal with services directly. I would recommend calling 1-866-522-2122, they will be able to help you much better than we can. You can also email Veteran Affairs at More information can be found here: I hope this helps!
