Veterans, their families and local officials today joined Stephen Fuhr, Member of Parliament for Kelowna–Lake Country, on behalf of the Honourable Kent Hehr, Minister of Veterans Affairs and Associate Minister of National Defence, for the reopening of the Veterans Affairs Canada office in Kelowna, British Columbia.
The office is located on the 1st floor of 471 Queensway Avenue, Kelowna, BC. The Kelowna office will employ approximately nine staff who will serve approximately 3,500 Veterans in the area. Staff at the office will answer questions about VAC services and benefits; arrange pension medical examinations; and, assist Veterans to complete and submit applications and receipts. Case-managed Veterans will also be able to meet with their case manager.
In August, Veterans Affairs Minister Kent Hehr visited the Kelowna office while it was still under construction. The Kelowna office is the third of nine Veterans Affairs offices to be reopened across the country by May 2017.
