Events – Military Spousal Employment Network

Altis Career Conference for Military Families


Register today for the popular Altis Career Conference for Military Families on September 14 – 16! For the second year a team of employment experts from Altis Recruitment, a Military Spousal Employment Network employer, is offering five packed career-training sessions online. The best part is that these sessions are tailored for you, the military spouse.

This year’s 1-hour career sessions include:

  • Building Your Resume
  • Your Digital Job Search
  • LinkedIn 101
  • The Art of the Interview
  • Altis in Action

Register for the conference even if you can’t attend all of the sessions and you’ll get all session recordings to watch later.

Details and registration:

This is not a Military Family Services event. We are promoting on behalf of our employer partner Altis Recruitment.

This event will be in English only with some handouts available in French and English.

Portfolio Development Program


The Portfolio Development Program is brought to you by BMO, the Official Bank of the Canadian Defence Community. With funds raised through the BMO Support Our Troops Mastercard Program, online career and entrepreneurship training is made available to military spouses.


What is the Portfolio Development Program?

The Portfolio Development Program is great for job seekers, entrepreneurs, students and anyone who’s looking for their next great career adventure. It lets you conduct an internal and external audit. The process will help you to highlight your prior learning, skills and talents towards the goal of your choice, whether it is for career, education or entrepreneurial reasons. The program includes six training sessions of two-hours each that occur over a three-week period. Once participants complete all of the six session requirements, they can submit their portfolio for assessment. After passing the assessment review, participants are eligible to receive a joint certificate from Loyalist College and the Trenton MFRC.
