Abstract:

Employment is important to health, well-being and adjustment from military to civilian life. Veterans who were not working were more likely than employed Veterans to report difficulty adjusting to civilian life. The importance of employment to successful transition to civilian life is recognized in the New Veterans Charter (NVC) which includes Career Transition Services and Vocational Rehabilitation. In addition, Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) is developing an Employment Strategy aimed at improving the employment outcomes of Veterans. This study examines: (1) Veteran labour-force outcomes in Canada and elsewhere; (2) the characteristics of the populations with various types of labour-market outcomes; and (3) effective interventions and best-practices in improving labour-market outcomes. This study reviewed 75 studies in the Canadian and international (United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand) literature on Veteran labour market outcomes. This study also analysed the Life After Service Studies 2010 and 2013 to provide a detailed examination of labour market indicators for Canadian Regular Force Veterans released since 1998.
