Who is considered a veteran?


Veteran`s son

Hello everyone:

Who is considered a veteran in Canada today?

Would it be those who have served only during wartime(WW2, Korea and the Persian Gulf, for example)? :salute: :cdn:
Would any other CF personnel be considered veterans?
Again, your replies would be appreciated!
Your best bet is to address the question to Veteran‘s Affairs - they are required to have a working definition of "veteran".

I believe the combat requirement has been removed, and any one who has served, regular or reserve, peace or war, for x number of days is considered a veteran when it comes to establishing claims for benefits, etc.
