Canadian Armed Forces Transition Services

Introduction

Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) Transition Services assist members of the CAF who have been or will be released in making the transition to the civilian workforce.  This transition program encourages prospective employers, including private and public sector organizations, to consider providing employment opportunities to releasing CAF members.

All serving or former members who have been honorably released and qualified in their occupation are eligible.

For members who will medically release

Please contact your local Integrated Personnel Support Centre for more details, or contact CAF Transition Services at 1-800-883-6094 or +TRANSITION.CAF-FAC@CMP DCSM@Ottawa-Hull (Internal) or DND.Transition.MDN@forces.gc.ca (External).

For members who will non-medically release
