Military experience, education and training help Veterans find civilian employment

Many Veterans found themselves working in jobs that used the knowledge and skills they acquired from their military service. Just over half of the Veterans (51%) who worked at a civilian job or ran a business reported that the knowledge and skills they used on the job were the same as those used while on active military service. Almost three-quarters of Veterans (73%) who worked since their release also reported that their military experiences, education and training helped them in their civilian careers.

Veterans report difficulties adjusting to civilian life

Every year, approximately 4,500 Canadian Armed Forces Regular Force members transition from active duty to civilian life. One-third of Veterans (33%) reported a difficult or very difficult adjustment to civilian life after serving as a member of the Regular Forces in Canada. This is up from 2013, when 30% of Veterans reported a difficult or very difficult adjustment.
