VETS Canada and the Veteran Friendly Transition Program (VFTP) Announce a National Partnership
VETS Canada and the Veteran Friendly Transition Program (VFTP)/Willis College are excited to announce a national partnership; to provide a continuum of support to Veterans during their program of study and their transition from service.
“VETS Canada is pleased to partner with VFTP and Willis College where it will provide emergency support to Veterans at Willis College. Transition is difficult for our Veterans and we are proud to do whatever we can to help our Veterans as they transition from service,” said Jim Lowther, Founder of VETS Canada.
“Leaving the military and the men and women that you serve with can be very overwhelming at times,” explained Master Corporal (ret’d) Michael McBride. “There are so many complicated things that you have to learn to do as you go through the stages of transition, when all you really want is to provide for your family. Having an organization like VETS Canada ready to support Veterans in a time of need during their academic studies will go far to assist our Veterans to have a more seamless transition.”
The new VFTP combines career counselling, personal and professional support, and transition training, all under one roof, simplifying the transition process for Veteran students. Willis College, Canada’s oldest college, is the first college who will receive the support from VETS Canada.
