The Canadian Legacy Project is proud to partner with Prospect Human Services, an innovative Alberta-based not-for-profit who runs two programs that help veterans and transitioning members of the Canadian Armed Force (CAF) back into the work force. This is a relatively new program, but since December 2015 they have placed over 600 veterans in new jobs. Our goal is to offer this program across Canada and to get our new government to begin funding this initiative.
Forces@WORK helps veterans and transitioning CAF personnel find good civilian careers. The program has helped hundreds of candidates and their families make successful transitions to good jobs, at equal or higher levels of ‘rank’ and compensation. There is no cost to participants. Forces@WORK has been endorsed by the Senate Subcommittee on Veterans Affairs, DND, and most importantly, the program’s users, who give it a satisfaction rating of 4.8 out of 5.

BaseToBusiness (BTB) is a Prospect initiative funded by the Government of Alberta to help employers attract, recruit and retain good candidates coming out of the Canadian Armed Forces. BTB workforce consultants show employers how to connect the right candidates to the right jobs, hire good people, and offer support before, during, and after the transition. All at no cost to the organization.
