The veterans independence program is something that's accessible to veterans who are eligible for it, obviously. It does some things quite well, and in other ways it could be improved. Obviously, scaling that with our geography and the numbers of people involved would be a challenge. The veterans independence program looks at those extra things that Ms. Mackenzie was talking about, which come to be considered necessities of living as we age: housekeeping, grounds maintenance, personal care, and so on.
The way the program is delivered permits some flexibility in which of those additional items the veteran chooses, to some extent, or what they must access the fund for. What works well is that there is some level of integration with provincial and municipal services or programs that may be available too, so it manages to tread that line between federal-provincial programs quite well in terms of its delivery.
