A proposed class action suit has been filed against the Government of Canada concerning an error that was made in the calculation of Veterans Affairs Canada Disability Benefits payable for the period 2002 to 2010. The suit alleges the error was discovered by the Government in 2010, but not disclosed to veterans until 2017 as a result of a report by the Veterans Ombudsman. [Editor's note: This report has since been deleted from the Government's website]. The Government of Canada has admitted there was an error and that $165 million dollars is owed to the affected veterans. The Government of Canada has advised they will pay out the money in 2020 without interest.
