Do you think that this card could in future contain confidential information on the person's health?

Several veterans told me that when they want to receive benefits, they have to demonstrate that they were injured in the course of their military service. The burden of proof rests with them in that regard. I am told that in the United States it is the opposite, since the authorities in that sector have the burden of proof. Is that correct? If so, would it be possible to change this approach in Canada, which would simplify life for veterans considerably?

Unfortunately, following a pilot project that involved several Canadian cities, we found out that over 2,000 veterans are homeless in Canada.
What was the nature of that pilot project exactly? What do you intend to do about the fact that there are that many homeless veterans in Canada?

Thank you very much for being here, Mr. Parent.
I would like to talk about transition and the fact that it is a process of reintegration.
I also feel that the one-stop shop is a very good idea, but I wonder how we can be sure that the process will be done correctly and appropriately. It seems to me that we often talk about before and after, but not about the period during which veterans are unaware that eventually they will be needing services.
We often hear about the way in which they become clients—which is not the best term here—of Veterans Affairs Canada. But once they are, how can we respond to the different needs of the Veterans Affairs Canada process?
I would like to know how the identity card is going to help veterans who will need Veterans Affairs Canada's services in 10 or 15 years. How is the card going to help them get information from the department, to get into contact with it? The department should be communicating with them directly.

For a year, I believe, at the recommendation of this committee, Veterans Affairs Canada has been able to make contact with members of the military before they leave the Canadian Armed Forces. In other words, the Department of Veterans Affairs can make contact with a member of the military who is going to leave the service for health reasons, either for physical or mental injuries, in order to make sure that the transition is done appropriately.
Is that actually the case? Does it work?

Last June, the critical injury benefit came into effect. A number of members are already taking advantage of it, both those still serving and those who no longer are.
In your opinion, would it be desirable for this benefit, a total of $70,000, to be deferred, like lump sums at the moment? I think the benefit is paid in one single payment.
