Employment Service has a team of professionals who understand the unique challenges of military life.
If you are a Military spouse we can:
- tell you about the local labour market
- help you to tailor your resume and cover letter to make it attractive to local markets
- offer information about programs, services and training that are available to you
If your profession requires a unique license (i.e. hairdresser,teacher, nurse, etc.) we can tell you more about the requirements in our area, and how you can apply. For more information, call us at either location.
In addition to these local programs, Military Family Services offers a number of programs for Military Spouses at a National level. These include on-line training for job seekers and support for those entrepreneurs building their own businesses.

Recently MFS introduced a new program called the Military Spousal Employment Network, which is a suite of employment programs to help spouses to access employers and opportunities across the country. This includes an on-line job board and virtual career fairs. For more information about this program, please go to: https://www.cafconnection.ca/National/Programs-Services/Employment/Military-Spousal-Employment-Network.aspx
If you are a past or present military member, we canhelp you with your transition to a civilian career. You can drop-in or make an appointment with one of our career coaches to find out more about:
- writing a resume that effectively conveys your military experience and value to potential employers
- developing effective job search skills
- refining interview techniques
Your military career has given you marketable skills that employers are looking for, and we can help you to build a resume that matches your experience to a civilian workplace.
