Release for medical reasons

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 families. The transition from military to civilian life brings with it several challenges, and 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 a release.
 

Services offered

  • 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 winter on “Transition Strategies for Military Members Being Medically Released and Their Spouses”
  • Talks
  • Training sessions (e.g. first aid related to mental health; finances, insurance and releases)
  • Etc.
 
We welcome any suggestions you might have regarding improving our services for military members being medically released and their families.
 
To access these services, you can call or e-mail the Family Liaison Officer directly.
