The Veteran Friendly Transition Program (VFTP) is a Veteran service that supports you while you are completing your vocational rehabilitation and post service, education and training at a college, or university. Currently, if you are a Veteran student attending Willis College Canada in Ottawa and Arnprior you will be supported by the VFTP. The VFTP includes career coaching, employment counselling, Veteran peer support, education and training classes on all aspects of transition. The aim of the program is simple - provide you with a flexible and supportive Veteran-friendly learning environment that will help enable you to find gainful and meaningful employment following your service to Canada.
Willis College, Est. 1866 was chosen as the location for the pilot because it has worked with Veterans throughout its history, providing job-ready education and training programs in shortest period of time to allow Veterans to find work following their retirement from service.
