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)
 

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 spring on “Transition Strategies for Military Members Being Medically Released and Their Spouses” or on demand (individual or conjugal)
  • Conferences
  • Courses and 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 Veteran Family Program Coordinator.
