Purpose

This policy provides an overview of Veterans Affairs Canada’s (VAC) Career Transition Services (CTS) - formerly the Job Placement Program for the interim period from October 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012. This policy provides direction on program principles, components, eligibility and processes.
Policy
Objective

    The objective of CTS is to facilitate the transition to civilian life of Canadian Forces (CF) Veterans (Regular and Reserve Forces) and survivors of CF members and Veterans by providing services that assist them in preparing for and obtaining “suitable civilian employment”.

Members of the Regular and Reserve Forces

    As per section 5 of the Canadian Forces Members and Veterans Re-establishment and Compensation Act (CFMVRCA), VAC may refuse to provide career transition services to a person if the person is entitled to receive those types of services from another organization.
    As of October 1, 2012, VAC does not offer CTS to still-serving CF members of the Regular or Reserve Forces as these services are available to them through the Canadian Forces.

Veterans’ Eligibility - Exclusion

    Irrespective of the eligibility criteria below, those who are discharged for misconduct or unsatisfactory service (Items 1 or 2 of the Queen’s Regulations and Orders for the Canadian Forces, article 15.01) are not eligible for the VAC’s CTS.

Regular Force Veterans’ Eligibility

    Veterans of the Regular Force who have completed basic training and who apply no later than 2 years after the date of their release from service.
    Veterans of the Regular Force who are eligible for Canadian Forces Income Support (CFIS) benefit under section 27 of the CRMVRCA. There are no time restrictions for applying for CTS in this case.

Reserve Force Veterans’ Eligibility

    Veterans of the Reserve Force who:
        have completed at least 21 months of full-time service during 24 consecutive months and apply no later than 2 years after the date of completion of that service; or
        have completed special duty service (SDS) or emergency service, and apply no later than 2 years after completion of that service. Emergencies are crisis situations, national or international, in which the Governor in Council, the Minister of National Defence, or the Chief of the Defence Staff has authorised the Canadian Forces to assist provinces, other federal government departments or international partners.
    Veterans of the Reserve Force who are eligible for a Canadian Forces Income Support (CFIS) benefit under section 27 of the CFMVRCA. There are no time restrictions for applying for CTS in this case.

Survivors’ Eligibility

    The survivor, as defined in subsection 2(1) of the CFMVRCA:
        of a Veteran of the Regular or Reserve Force who dies and who was or would have been eligible for CTS but for the occurrence of death;
        of a member of the Regular Force;
        of a member of the Reserve Force who, at the time of death, completed or committed in writing to at least 21 months of full-time service during 24 consecutive months; or
        of a member of the Reserve Force who completed special duty service (SDS) or emergency service. Emergencies are crisis situations, national or international, in which the Governor in Council, the Minister of National Defence, or the Chief of the Defence Staff has authorised the Canadian Forces to assist provinces, other federal government departments or international partners.
    In all cases in paragraph 9, the survivor must apply for CTS within two years of the Veteran or member’s death.
    A survivor who is eligible for a Canadian Forces Income Support (CFIS) benefit under section 28 of the CFMVRCA. There are no time restrictions for applying for CTS in this case.

Revoked Eligibility

    Eligibility for CTS may be revoked under the following circumstances:
        a participant was mistakenly considered eligible for CTS due to an administrative or  other error;
        a participant met eligibility requirements at the time of the eligibility decision, but subsequently lost a qualifying factor; or
        a participant is in CTS by virtue of being a CFIS recipient (under section 27 or 28 of the Act) and the CFIS benefit is subsequently cancelled.

Application Form

    In order to be eligible for CTS, a completed CTS application form must be submitted to the Department which should include any information that is necessary to determine eligibility, such as relevant military release documentation and/or other information from the CF or other sources

Delayed Applications

    CTS applicants must apply within prescribed time limits in order to be eligible for CTS unless the reasons for the delay are reasonable in the circumstances. Each “delayed application” will be considered on its own merit under subsection 76(3) of the Act based on supporting documentation and/or other evidence. Examples of reasonable delays may include, but are not limited to:
        long-term illness or accident post-release and unrelated to military service;
        illness in family – such as care of elderly parents;
        participant waits to apply until after his/her final relocation after release; or
        participation in the Department’s Rehabilitation and Vocational Assistance Program.
    Delayed applications may be approved in consultation with the National Manager of CTS.

Effective Date

    The CTS effective date is the date the eligibility decision is made. The policy in effect on the date of decision is applied to the eligibility decision. For example, this CTS Interim Policy applies to all eligibility decisions made on or after October 1, 2012 until December 31, 2012.

Program Description

    The Department’s CTS program is delivered by a contracted national service provider and includes individual career counselling and job finding assistance.
    Individual career counselling aims to help eligible participants develop the necessary knowledge and skills to obtain suitable civilian employment and may include interest, aptitude and skills assessment and job market analysis.
    Job finding assistance is available for eligible participants to obtain suitable civilian employment and may include assistance in resume writing, interview skills and job searching.
    The Department’s CTS do not offer financial assistance to participants requiring access to further training or education. However, CTS may identify other appropriate programs or services including, but not limited to, Canadian Forces programs, Service Canada/Human Resources and Skills Development Canada programs, or provincial programs.

Successful Completion

    CTS may be considered successfully completed when it is determined by the Department, in collaboration with the participant, that the following circumstances are met:
        the participant has obtained suitable employment while participating in CTS, whether he or she received all, or part, of the available services;
        the career transition plan outcome(s) has been achieved; or
        CTS plan has been completed to the extent where all available services have been provided and exhausted.
    After successfully completing CTS, the participant may re-apply at a later date to receive additional CTS. At the time of re-application, it will be determined if eligibility requirements for CTS are met.
    If eligibility has been re-established, the additional CTS will build upon previously obtained knowledge and skills, as well as address possible needs or changes in the participant’s unique circumstances. An example may include, but is not limited to, a change in the local labour market.

Cancellation

    “Cancellation of CTS” means that CTS will be terminated; the participant will be required to re-apply in order to receive further CTS.
    Cancellation could occur due to the following reasons:
        the participant transfers out of the CTS program in order to participate in VAC’s Rehabilitation and Vocational Assistance Program, which offers similar career transition services;
        the participant transfers out of the CTS program in order to participate in the Service Income Security Insurance Plan’s (SISIP) vocational rehabilitation services; or
        the basis for eligibility to CTS has been lost. Examples may include, but are not limited to, release under Items 1 or 2 of the Queens Regulations and Orders for the Canadian Forces, or cancellation of the CFIS benefit.

Reconsideration of Decisions

    It is not anticipated that there will be disagreements requiring any formal system of redress. Should any disagreements arise they will be dealt with informally and expeditiously. Any reconsideration will be conducted by an individual, who was not involved in the original decision.

Participant Expenses

    Participants in CTS are not eligible to be reimbursed for travel or other expenses incurred (i.e., travel to attend interviews or seminars, etc.).
