For this rea­son, last Oc­to­ber, the Mi­li­ta­ry Fa­mi­ly Ser­vices have laun­ched two ini­tia­tives to ease the pro­fes­sio­nal in­te­gra­tion and re­lo­ca­tion wi­thin Ca­na­da of mi­li­ta­ry spouses. In­ven­to­ry of Ca­sual Em­ploy­ment for Mi­li­ta­ry Spouses

The first ini­tia­tive is the crea­tion of an in­ven­to­ry pro­du­ced in part­ner­ship with the De­part­ment of Na­tio­nal De­fence to make a con­nec­tion bet­ween mi­li­ta­ry spouses and fe­de­ral pu­blic ser­vice re­crui­ters loo­king for qua­li­fied and ex­pe­rien­ced em­ployees. The sim­pli­fied re­gis­tra­tion and ap­pli­ca­tion form pro­vides ac­cess to tem­po­ra­ry em­ploy­ment for 90 bu­si­ness days or less per ca­len­dar year, wi­thin in­clu­sive work­places that are aware of the rea­li­ty of mi­li­ta­ry fa­mi­lies.

Mi­li­ta­ry Spou­sal Em­ploy­ment Net­work

This Web plat­form pro­vides se­ve­ral tools and ac­ti­vi­ties, in­clu­ding a bul­le­tin board dis­playing job op­por­tu­ni­ties and on­line or in- per­son job fairs at­ten­ded by em­ployers af­fi­lia­ted to the Net­work from across the coun­try. These em­ployers are aware of the chal­lenges po­sed by the unique li­fe­style of mi­li­ta­ry fa­mi­lies. By joi­ning the Net­work, they com­mit to give a fair chance of being hi­red to mi­li­ta­ry spouses, and to ease their trans­fer from one branch to ano­ther, whe­ne­ver pos­sible.
