Recognize your Employer

Letter of Recognition

A simple letter thanking an employer for time off goes a long way and should be written anytime that leave is granted. Sample letters are located in the Tools section that are suitable for Reservists to send directly to their employers and letters that are designed to be sent by the unit commanding officer.

Certificates of Recognition

Through the Reserve Unit Support Program Reservists can request a certificate of recognition for specific instances where an employer has been very supportive. Reservists may complete the order form in the Tools section and submit to their unit employer support representative who will forward on to the Liaison Officer for printing.

Employer Support Awards

Employer Support Awards are presented in a two-year cycle and awarded at the Provincial and National Levels. All Canadian employers, and educational institutions, in both the private and public sectors, are eligible. All Reservists are encouraged to nominate their civilian employer or educator for a CFLC award. See the Awards section for more information.
