This report lists all publications produced by the Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) Research Directorate from 1992 to 2018. Short descriptions for each publication give an insight into the work of VAC.
The VAC (Veterans Affairs Canada) Research Directorate was established in 2002 under the leadership of Dr. David Pedlar PhD, in response to a need for evidence to guide the development of policies and programs for Canadian military Veterans and their families. This report lists publications produced by researchers from Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) Research Directorate from 1992 to 2018. This comprehensive body of research evidence provides sound scientific evidence for the seven domains of the VAC well-being framework: employment/other sense of purpose, finances, health and disability, life skills/knowledge, social integration, housing/physical environment and cultural/social environment. The Directorate’s research takes a life course view, including a special focus on the transition from military to civilian life. The work informs policies, programs and services provided by VAC and other agencies to support the well-being of Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) Veterans and their families. The report gives the citation and a short description for each publication. Of the 173 publications, there were 65 professional journal papers, 12 book chapters, 48 Technical Reports published by VAC, and 48 other types of publications, including Info Briefs and Data Reports. Each of the Technical Reports includes French language Executive Summaries, and 37 of the publications were translated entirely into French. For ease of access, this report sorts the publications by areas of interest, including well-being domains, special interest topics, and programs of research.
