The 2017 Federal Retirees’ Veterans Outreach Initiative

The National Association of Federal Retirees is holding a series of 12 town hall style sessions this fall with serving and retired members of the Canadian Armed Forces, the RCMP and their families. We want to hear what is and what is not working well in the transition process between military or RCMP service and civilian life.

As an independent, not for profit association with 60,000 Veterans among our 176,000 members, the National Association of Federal Retirees is uniquely placed to play a meaningful role in bringing Veterans’ and their families’ concerns to the attention of the federal government and Veterans advocacy groups,” said national President Jean-Guy Soulière.

As a trustworthy third-party, we plan to compile a report based on what we hear at these 12 sessions and present it to key decision makers at a conference in Ottawa next spring.

With the release in June of Canada’s new Defence Policy: Strong, Secure, Engaged, Federal Retirees believes an opportunity exists to influence the creation of a new Canadian Armed Forces Transition Group that provides support to all members to seamlessly transition to post-military life.

Help us to make a difference in the lives of Veterans and their families. Come out to one of our sessions and share your experiences with us.
