Elevate PLUS Military – Remote Work Fundamentals

Home Elevate PLUS Military – Remote Work Fundamentals

Eligible Individuals and Employers receive 100% funding to cover training costs under this SAO initiative.

Military Spouses, Military Family Members and former serving Military Members bring strong skills and a diverse set of experiences, perspectives, and ideas to the workforce. These members of Canada’s military community form one of Canada’s most adaptable, versatile, and hidden talent pools. They are often resilient, problem solvers, dedicated and are looking to be part of a great team. Elevate Plus Military addresses the challenges faced by Military Spouses, Military Family Members and former serving Military Members as they integrate into the local workforce. Military life can involve unique pressures including frequent relocations, and disruptions to family life through short notice and prolonged absences of their serving member often in dangerous situations. A lack of positions or opportunities that align with their education and background means they must often start over with each posting.
