Employment Network

Military Spousal Employment Network

Finding and retaining employment can be a challenge for military spouses for a variety of reasons. Together, Military Family Services (MFS) and MFRCs work to promote the military spouse population in Canada to regional and national employers.

MFS has recently launched the Military Spousal Employment Network, developed as part of a suite of employment and entrepreneurship programs and services available to military spouses. The Network is a self-directed resource where military spouses can directly access employers and employment opportunities. Some of the tools available include an online job board and virtual career fairs with participating employers located in multiple locations across Canada. 

If you are currently seeking employment this resource is for you.
