Advocates

The RCMP Veterans’ Association’s advocacy program is designed to recognize, protect, promote and generally champion the rights of its members as it relates to issues of pension, insurance and health care.

The Advocacy Branch of the Association is managed by Director Ruby Burns.

You will notice below, links to the Advocates Manual and a current (2019) copy of the Veterans’ Benefits Guide which should be reviewed from time to time.

Further down is a list of the Divisional Advocates with telephone numbers and email addresses should you require assistance.  Even if your needs are not within the Advocate’s purview, the Advocate can steer you in the right direction for the kind of help you need.
