Canadian Veterans Vocational Rehabilitation Services

On behalf of Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC), Canadian Veterans Vocational Rehabilitation Services (CVVRS) delivers vocational rehabilitation and vocational assistance services to Veterans and their families across Canada.

 

CVVRS is a joint venture between WCG Services and March of Dimes Canada. Together, we bring more than 55 years of combined experience providing comprehensive vocational rehabilitation services and a national network of service providers and experts to ensure the best support for Veterans and their families on behalf of VAC.

 

CVVRS offers professional, respectful, and customized vocational services to help Veterans transition their distinct capabilities and valuable skills to rewarding careers in the civilian workforce. Transitioning to civilian life can be a challenge for any Veteran; when they have suffered a serious injury or illness as a result of service, the challenge is often more difficult. By taking into consideration each Veteran’s specific health needs, skills and abilities, our person-centred approach means we tailor our services to meet individual needs.

 

If you have been medically released or are a Canadian Armed Forces Veteran with a service-related injury or illness, CVVRS may be right for you. In certain cases, spouses, common-law partners and survivors may also qualify to access vocational rehabilitation or assistance services.

 

WCG delivered CanVet Vocational Services from 2009–2014 in partnership with March of Dimes Canada and IRC on behalf of VAC to help Veterans achieve their employment goals. CanVet was the first national vocational rehabilitation program in Canada, and served over 3250 Veterans and their families across the country and internationally. WCG’s CanVet Administration Centre provided claims processing and reimbursement for program-related expenses, including training.

 

Together with March of Dimes Canada, WCG is honoured to continue to provide comprehensive vocational rehabilitation services through CVVRS to ensure the best support for Veterans and their families on behalf of VAC.
