For those Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) personnel who have a medical condition that limits their full involvement in their trade or occupation, there are important support mechanisms in place, including the existence of a CAF unit that focuses on their needs. The Joint Personnel Support Unit (JPSU) provides personal administrative support and programs to ill or injured CAF members of the Regular and Reserve Force who have a medical condition that precludes them from returning to their normal place of duty for a period of six months or more.
A total of 24 Integrated Personnel Support Centres (IPSCs) and seven satellite centres make up the Joint Personnel Support Unit. These support centres and their satellite locations provide one-on-one contact and support for serving and former CAF personnel, their families and the families of the fallen.
Through the coordination and facilitation of integrated support services, the support unit and its support centres provide access to available benefits, programs, and family services, allowing ill and injured CAF members and their families to focus on recovery and reintegration.
