Veterans Affairs Timeline
Updated: June 21, 2013
In October of 2011 the first news came out that the Department of Veterans Affairs was planning big budget cuts over the next few years.
Spending was expected to decrease, said government documents, due to a dwindling number of veterans.
Since that first story, there has been a series of announcements regarding how the cuts would roll out, and how they would affect veterans and jobs at the department.
CBC News has put together this timeline to help make sense of the cuts.
