Just spotted this this morning via the VAC 'Budman info-machine:
Canada's Veterans Ombudsman, Guy Parent, will host a public town hall in Calgary, Alberta, for Veterans, military and RCMP members, their families, and other interested parties. This is an opportunity for the Ombudsman to hear the concerns of the Veterans’ community. Mr. Parent will provide information about the work his Office is doing to help Veterans, and his priorities for addressing the gaps in the benefits and services that are provided to Veterans and their families.

Before the town hall, between 8:00 and 16:00, Veterans can schedule a consultation with an Ombudsman Service Representative to discuss their case privately. Consultations are made in 20-minute time slots on a first-come, first-served basis. Veterans are asked to schedule a consultation in advance by emailing by March 3, 2017. Personal cases cannot be discussed during the town hall due to privacy concerns.
