Are You Eligible?

Any transitioning member of the Canadian Armed Forces is eligible for the Forces@WORK program. We also serve:

  • Priority releasing ill & injured members
  • Reservists
  • Retiring regular force members
  • Veterans
  • Priority spouses or families dealing with a medical release
  • Spouses and youth (15-25 years of age) of serving regular force members

And best of all, Forces@WORK is available at no cost, since Prospect is a charitable not-for-profit. If you are ready to work, want to leverage the skills you gained in the military and retain the quality of life you have earned, all you need is a referral from the IPSC, BPSO, a Commanding Officer, Veterans Affairs Canada, the Military Family Resource Centre, or SISIP.

Thumbs Up

Of the candidates we have helped in Forces@WORK, participants have given the program an average satisfaction rating of 4.8 out of 5.
(A rating that made our CEO ask, "What happened to the other .2?")

 

Harsh Reality? OR Good To Know?

In a survey of 850 employers, just 13% said that their HR departments know how to read a resume from a military applicant and only 3% knew where to receive training on how to read one. Forces@WORK can help you make your skills and your resume understood.

Why Us?

There are a number of good reasons why you should enlist the help of Forces@WORK. Prospect worked with former and serving members of the military to design the program. We know who is hiring, and have forecasts for hot job sectors in the future. A Forces@WORK Employment Placement Specialist can put you in touch with employers who need help now. And we provide placement and retention supports that make sense for both the employer and employee.

We Also Help Employers

Prospect has another program that helps transitioning members of the Canadian Armed Forces even if they're not participants in Forces@WORK. Our BaseToBusiness program works with employers, ensuring that they know where to find candidates with military experience, understand qualifications, and are aware of cultural differences between military and civilian workplaces.


By working with employers we can smooth the road for all transitioning members of the Canadian Armed Forces looking for civilian jobs. Because let's face it, if an employer can't tell a BMQ from an AMSC, there's bound to be a SNAFU.

I’m an employer and I'd like more information about recruiting transitioning members of the Canadian Armed Forces.
