Req # A-2018-00137

In 2003, the rates at schedule 1 to the Pension Act increased. Between 2002-2010, some veterans, RCMP members and their survivors were given lower monthly payments than they were entitled to due to VAC failing to make necessary adjustments in personal tax exemptions pertaining to monthly disability pensions. In November 2018, PM Trudeau promised to repay $165 million to disabled veterans shortchanged on pensions. The repayments aren't expected to begin until 2020, which the minister blamed on the sheer number ---270,000--- of Canadians affected. Request copies of any and all briefing notes prepared on this very issue in 2018 for the VAC senior management, including but not limited to the DEPUTY MINSTER, the Associate Deputy Minister, the Assistant Deputy Minister (Service Delivery), the Assistant Deputy Minister (Chief Financial Officer and Corporate Services, and, as well as the Minister of Veterans Affairs.
