Cabela's Canada Will Offer Priority Hiring to Veterans
Eve Adams, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Veterans Affairs and Member of Parliament for Mississauga–Brampton South, congratulated John Tramburg, Vice-President of Cabela’s Canada, on its commitment to Canada’s Veterans.
“Our Veterans have a great deal to offer,” said Parliamentary Secretary Adams. “I applaud the efforts of Cabela’s Canada, and other corporate partners such as Queen’s University and Mount Allison University, for joining our Hire a Veteran initiative. I call on the rest of corporate Canada to join these leading companies in this initiative, and to allow Canada’s Veterans to put the excellent training and skills gained during their service to use in the civilian workforce. Without a doubt, these companies will benefit greatly from hiring highly skilled Canadian Veterans.”
“Cabela’s Canada is proud to partner with Veterans Affairs Canada,” said John Tramburg. “We are committed to helping Canadian Veterans transition to their civilian lives. As Cabela’s grows, so will our need to hire knowledgeable employees to support Cabela's culture and our customers. We’re excited to participate in this important initiative for our Canadian Veterans.”
The work of Cabela’s Canada builds upon the Veterans Transition Action Plan, launched last fall by the Honorable Steven Blaney, Minister of Veterans Affairs. The plan consists of new measures for cutting red tape for Veterans, enhancements to service delivery, post-military career opportunities for Veterans, ground-breaking research on the needs of releasing Canadian Armed Forces personnel, and enhanced cultural awareness.
