Release for medical reasons
Transition to the civilian life
Being medically released from the Canadian Armed Forces entails a lot of emotions, worries and questions for the military member, but also for his/her family . The transition from military to civilian life brings with it several challenges. Research shows that involving the family (spouse and/or other loved ones) in every aspect of the transition increases the chances that it will be a success for the military member and his/her family. That’s why, as part of the Veteran Family Program, we offer services to military members and their families before and after a release for medical reasons, or any kind of release (see the Veteran Family Program tab for more information)
We welcome any suggestions you might have regarding improving our services for military members being medically released and their families.
- Consultations for individuals, couples and families to address issues they are dealing with and to guide their actions to resolve those issues
- A reference to the appropriate resources to address current or future needs
- Workshops in the fall and spring on “Transition Strategies for Military Members Being Medically Released and Their Spouses” or on demand (individual or conjugal)
- Courses and training sessions (e.g. first aid related to mental health; finances, insurance and releases)
To access these services, you can call or e-mail the Veteran Family Program Coordinator.
