About HKVCA

Question

Answer

What role does HKVCA play in assisting the Hong Kong veterans in achieving restitution for their treatment in World War II and post-war? As indicated in our mission and goals, HKVCA advocates on behalf of the Hong Kong veterans and widows to ensure they have access to all services provided by Veterans Affairs Canada. As HKVCA has charitable status, we cannot endanger that status by making political statements on behalf of our veterans. It should be noted that the Government of Canada paid an extraordinary benefit to Hong Kong veterans in 1998. Read more by visiting the Veterans Affairs Canada site. Once there, select the Search tool and enter the search terms "hong kong veterans payment".

It should also be noted that these veterans never held their assignment against the Canadian government nor did they ever seek any type of apology for it.

How many Hong Kong veterans are still living? See the membership table below and look at the "V" column.

About This Website

Question

Answer

This site does not display well on my computer. The information is out of order. Please contact us and provide as much information as you are able. For instance:
  • operating system used (XP, Vista, Win7, Mac-OS, etc)
  • browser used (Internet Explorer, FireFox, Chrome, Safari, etc)
  • specific problem with page (provide screenshot if you can)
 I cannot access some of the sub sites such as the Gallery and the Teachers' Zone

We have been informed of isolated cases where access errors have occurred, but there appears to be no common cause.

Feel free to contact us and provide details about your problem - we'll do our best to help.

I find the pages hard to read due to the fact that the text is too large/too small Most browsers will allow you to select the text size that you find best for you. In Internet Explorer, choose the View menu, then select Text Size, and make your selection. This selection will remain in effect until you change it. Keep in mind however, that not all other web sites are designed to display text at the size you've specified.

One other solution to the problem is to hold down the Ctrl key and roll the wheel on the mouse forward, or backward, to adjust the type size of the page you are reading. This works in most browsers.

When I print the pages, the links on the left are missing, as is the information at the bottom These parts of the page are not required when the page is printed, and so are suppressed. The advantage of this is that each page can hold more information. Our small effort for the environment.
I've found a broken link. Can you fix it? Please let us know about all broken links, as we take pride in keeping our site up to date. Unfortunately, external links are not under our control, but we do our best to monitor them and adjust our content when an external link is found to be broken.
