Military Community

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.  For more information about  the range of programs that are available, please go to:


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:

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.
