This paper describes the Veterans’ well-being construct that emerged at VAC over the past decade in a consensus-seeking, multidisciplinary process informed by reviews of published literature, expert consultations and evidence from the Life After Service Studies (LASS). The objective of this paper is to describe the well-being construct and place it within a conceptual framework with utility in (1) the development and evaluation of policy, programming and service delivery and (2) research in Veterans’ issues. The goal is to support the well-being of Canadian Veterans and their families in life after service.
