Many military members might be missing out on free services to help them transition effectively into civilian life. I just finished providing career transition services to a military member who had served his country for over 30 years. He applied through VAC and my fees were paid for. Make sure you get ALL the services you are entitled to!!
Here is the link to the veteran’s affairs website. http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/services/transition/career
Veterans and survivors can get help finding civilian employment through the Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) Career Transition Services (CTS) Program. VAC will reimburse eligible Veterans and survivors for these services, up to a lifetime maximum of $1,000 (including taxes).
What services could I be reimbursed for?
- Career assessments
- Aptitude testing
- Job market analysis
- Resume writing
- Job search skills
- Interview techniques
- Individual career counselling
- Job finding assistance
- Services of a professional recruiter agent
