Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Mr. Ombudsman, Ms. Hynes. when soldiers with a minimum of 10 years of service leave the Canadian Armed Forces, they get a record of service card. According to my information, they do not get a record of service card if they have not served for 10 years.
Should they not receive the card regardless of the number of years they have served?
What is your opinion?

Do you think it would be desirable to eventually include a
a smart chip
on the veteran's card
where you would find some health information and so on?

I know that under the previous government steps were being taken to start this process of 2.0 or 3.0 cards. Do you know if there's something going on right now in DND or VAC concerning that?

General Natynczyk, it is a great honour for me to meet you and to be able to ask you questions. During the first years of my military service, you were my highest ranking superior. I would have three questions for you.
Firs of all, in 2014-2015, the Minister of Veterans Affairs at the time, Mr. Erin O'Toole, intended to introduce a card which was to be given to all veterans, regardless of their number of years of service. It was to be issued in two phases. During the first one, the type of service and number of years the member had served was to be established. In the second phase, an electronic chip was to be added which would contain information on the person's health.
I would like to know where that project stands and whether it is still going forward.

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

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.
