Pension Act
« on: July 20, 2018, 18:58:09 »
Hello everyone!

I was just wondering if anyone here received a claim through VAC under the following Pension Act policy:

(3) For the purposes of subsection (2), an injury or disease, or the aggravation of an injury or disease, shall be presumed, in the absence of evidence to the contrary, to have arisen out of or to have been directly connected with military service of the kind described in that subsection if the injury or disease or the aggravation thereof was incurred in the course of

(a) any physical training or any sports activity in which the member was participating that was authorized or organized by a military authority, or performed in the interests of the service although not authorized or organized by a military authority;

More specifically, the last part, about the "perfomed in the interest of the service although not authorized or organized by a military authority". Were some of you successful in using this part of the Pension Act? If so, how exactly? Feel free to send me a PM if you do not wish to discuss such matters publicly!
