Report and Government Response

Report 15: Invisible No More. The Experiences of Canadian Women Veterans
  • Adopted by the Committee: May 6, 2024
  • Presented to the House: June 12, 2024
  • Government Response Requested

The Committee is undertaking a comprehensive study on women Veterans that will be ongoing until next fall. The topics covered include the following:

  • the physical and mental health and the treatment of injuries and illnesses that are most likely to affect women differently during their military service;
  • the particularities of transitioning after service for women:
    • the physical aspects of women Veterans’ health;
    • the psychosocial and mental aspects of women Veterans’ health; and
    • the professional and economic aspects of women Veterans’ lives.
  • retirement and long-term care; and
  • initiatives developed in allied countries.

The Committee intends to dedicate more than 20 meetings to hearing from women Veterans from all backgrounds, as well as representatives of relevant departments, veterans’ rights advocacy groups, experts, and any other individuals or organizations that can contribute to the study of this important topic.

The recommendations formulated further to this study will help the Government of Canada implement the best possible support measures for women Veterans.
