With over 61,500 military spouses located across the country and with military families relocating three times more than the average Canadian, DND aims to help reduce the stressors associated with such frequent relocation. One stressor that spouses often face is the acquisition or continuity of meaningful employment when arriving at a new base or wing. The aim of this Military Spouse Casual Inventory is to support spouses and common-law partners seeking to maintain their skills and pursue or continue their careers. Covering a broad range of work streams, this new inventory will not only bridge the link between skilled and experienced military spouses and hiring managers, but will also offer flexible and meaningful employment opportunities to spouses who find themselves at new bases and wings across Canada.
