Measures give priority hiring and new employment opportunities in the federal public service to Canadian Armed Forces personnel and Veterans

TORONTO, /CNW/ - The Honourable Julian Fantino, Minister of Veterans Affairs, today joined Canadian Armed Forces personnel and Veterans at Denison Armoury, in Toronto, to announce new government measures that will help move Veterans to the front of the line when it comes to hiring qualified Canadians for federal public service jobs.

The consolidated Veterans Hiring Act builds on previous government commitments as well as new ones outlined in Economic Action Plan 2014 to help Veterans find meaningful employment after their time in uniform is complete. In recognition of their service to Canada, Canadian Armed Forces personnel and honourably released Veterans will be given more access to federal public service job opportunities. As outlined in Economic Action Plan 2014, the Government of Canada is proposing changes to the Public Service Employment Act to enhance employment opportunities in the federal public service for Veterans.

Beginning a new, meaningful career is an important part of a successful transition from military to civilian life when Canada's men and women in uniform conclude their service. Qualified Veterans who have at least three years of military service will be given preference in advertised, external hiring processes for five years after the date of release. Additionally, Veterans and CAF personnel with at least three years of military service will be allowed to participate in advertised, internal hiring processes for a period expiring five years after their release date.

These new measures build on the Government of Canada's recent announcement that Veterans of the CAF who have medically released due to a service-related injury or illness will get the top level of priority consideration for job openings in the public service. This means eligible Veterans whose military service is cut short by a career-ending injury or illness suffered in the line of duty will be given statutory, priority access in the federal public service. Additionally, the duration of priority access for all medically released CAF personnel would be extended from two years to five years.

All proposed changes are expected to come into force in 2014-15.

Since 2012, the Government of Canada has also been working successfully with corporate Canada and other organizations to help Veterans find employment in the private sector.

Jobs open/anti-immigration bigots minds are not

by Geneseovian

If you have certain job skills / certifications, especially in nursing, the human resource departments in hospitals, etc. actually are sincere about wanting you.
Be aware, however, that just like in the United States (although on a far lesser scale), anti-immigration bigots inside and outside of the government have made it so there's all kinds of red tape and fees to go through if you are a foreigner who wishes to work in Canada.
