Willis College was chosen as the location for the Veteran Friendly Transition Program pilot because it has worked with Veterans throughout its history, providing education and training programs to allow Veterans to find work following their retirement from service.
In 2016, Willis College created A Soldier’s Hero Scholarship for Canadian military spouses. Willis College invested in this initiative to recognize the significant role played by military spouses in supporting our troops at home and abroad.
Given Willis College’s past experiences in supporting Veterans and their families, it was decided by the project team that Willis College would be a natural choice to pilot the Veteran Friendly Transition Program.
