Military Service Recognition Book
As the “Keepers of Remembrance”, Ontario Command is proud to publish an annual Military Service Recognition Book to identify and recognize many of our Veterans in Ontario, who have either served or are still serving in our Canadian Armed Forces, the Commonwealth or Allied Forces.
Corunna Legion is proud to contribute to this important program. We invite you to visit Branch 447 to obtain more information regarding this Remembrance program and more importantly, to submit a story and photo of a Veteran. Everyone is welcome to submit a story, including Veterans, relatives or friends.
Although this program is managed by Ontario Command, all submissions should be made via local Legion Branches. Drop off or send your histories and stories to Branch 447 early. We accept them year-round, deadline for the next Volume is May 15th 2023.

Miscalculation of Disability Pensions Class Action Notification
This communique will be of interest to those of you who are receiving (or have received) a disability pension from VAC. (Eligibility also includes families of deceased veterans.)
Each year, as required by the Pension Act, Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) calculates annual increases in monthly disability benefits to account for inflation. Through this certified class proceeding, Class Counsel has identified several errors in VAC’s calculations. These alleged errors date back to 2002. Many to whom this may apply believe that they will automatically receive compensation. Regrettably, this is not correct. The good news is that VAC has settled in favour of the complainants; the bad news is that the claimant registration process closes on 31 Mar 23.
