Military Spousal Employment Network
Brought to you by Military Family Services

Military Family Services (MFS) realizes that many military families may be significantly affected by Canada’s strategies to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Throughout these unprecedented times, the MFS Spousal Employment team remains available to continue to provide support and programming to military spouses in their career development and training.

The Military Spousal Employment Network (MSEN) will continue to offer the Virtual Career and Networking Fair on March 25, 2020 from 1:00 – 4:00 pm. Many MSEN employers are committed to connecting with you in their talent search for available career opportunities.

We understand however, if participating is no longer possible. The unique demands on military families due to current events may have shifted priorities, and we encourage you to focus on what’s most important for you and your family during this time. In understanding of this, MFS will host another virtual event in the near future, so everyone interested in the event can have another opportunity to connect with MSEN employers.

If you or a family member needs immediate assistance, please call the Family Information Line (FIL) at 1-800-866-4546. FIL counselors are available 24/7 to provide personal, confidential and bilingual service to military families.
