Canada’s military veterans are known around the world for their skills, abilities and expertise. They are admired for their teamwork and leadership and have executed their duties faithfully and effectively. Unfortunately when many of our veterans leave the Canadian Armed Forces, they have a difficult time transitioning to civilian careers. It is not for the lack of experience or education, but at times the lack of opportunity and understanding.

EMPOWERING VETERANS THROUGH ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Canadian Legacy Project is thrilled to announce the launch of a new veteran focused entrepreneurial training program “Veteran Business Boot Camp” in partnership with Mount Royal University. The free five-day certificate program; is a robust entrepreneurial training and micro loan program. Veteran Business Boot Camp is designed to open the door to entrepreneurial opportunities and small business ownership for our Canadian military veterans.

Veterans Business Boot Camp is a free program being offered to Canadian military veterans which will develop student competencies through the many steps and activities associated with creating and sustaining an entrepreneurial venture and by helping veterans find additional appropriate programs and services. Upon completion of the Business Boot Camp, students can apply for micro loans through Servus Credit Union to bring their vision to life. Canadian Legacy Project believes entrepreneurship is a meaningful answer to veteran joblessness and we will be offering this program in five cites across Canada. The first classes runs from June 24th to 28th in Calgary.
