|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
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.|
|I'm looking for information on a specific 'C' Force member. What's the best way to look it up?||
|I would like to join HKVCA - how do I do this?||Please visit our Contacts page|

|This site does not display well on my computer. The information is formatted poorly.||Please contact us and
provide as much information as you are able. For instance:
Note: please make sure to update your browser, as older versions may have difficulties displaying web pages, and they are security risks as well.
|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.|
|I have information on a member of 'C' Force. How do I send it?||If it's an image, it will need to be scanned, and then attached to an email. Documents can also be scanned, but if they are already in digital format, just attach the document files to an email. Send the email to the contact link which you'll find at the top-left of most of our pages. If you're not sure of the processes we've just described, feel free to contact us and we'll walk you through the steps.|
