Canada increases financial support for veterans pursuing PSE

June 5, 2017

The Government of Canada says that it has made it a priority to improve the benefits and services for Canadian veterans and their families, which includes increasing support for pursuing PSE. Budget 2017 reportedly acts as a comprehensive package that recognizes the role of caregivers, aids families, supports mental health, and pays for the education and training that Veterans need to pursue work in their post-military lives. This includes an Education and Training benefit that will provide up to $80K in financial support for Veterans to achieve their education and employment goals through college, university, or technical education. These funds will be available to cover tuition, course materials, and some incidentals and living expenses. Veterans Affairs Canada
