The Transition workshop will provide C.A.F. members and their families with info to help transition from military life to civilian life
Transitioning from serving our country as a member of CAF to becoming a civilian is not easy. It is an important step as part of your life journey and not only are you having to look after yourself but also your family.
We have assembled a group of experts who can give you advice on your transition.
Hear from our speakers:
For many people this is the 1st time in their life that they will have to purchase a home, set up their financial investments and find a good paying job in a stable career. When you were serving, many of these decisions were made FOR you. Now that you are being released, these decisions have to be made BY you, your spouse or your family.
The goal of the Transition Workshop is to provide you with a real-world perspective and answers to many of these questions. We have invited industry leaders in the area of investments, real estate, law, accounting, career retraining in order for you to hear 1st hand how other CAF members before you have successfully transitioned.
