Supporting Those Who Serve

Supporting Those Who Serve ensures that veterans and their families across the country have access quality services and highly trained service providers. The program uses the strengths of the Canada’s largest postsecondary network to develop a talent pipeline solution addressing recruitment and retention challenges identified by Veterans Affairs Canada.

Supporting Those Who Serve links colleges and institutes with VAC field offices to raise awareness about careers as Veteran Service Agents and Case Managers and offer work-integrated learning opportunities. The program provides a framework for colleges and institutes to adapt their high-quality training to VAC’s needs.

VAC-WIL placements are smoother than ever.
