Catch up on the latest news on the Legion Military Skills Conversion Program and related programs here.

The Legion Military Skills Conversion Program has signed an agreement with TPD (Formerly The Personnel Department) to establish an "Education to Career Pipeline".  The Personnel Department is a global HR solutions organization that specializes in staff placement, recruitment and HR consultancy.  Thanks to our new support from The Personnel Department, CF members going through our program will gain the skills and tools necessary to put them on the right track to a successful career.


Staff of the Legion Military Skills Conversion program, Justine Arsenault and Fred Mandl, were given the opportunity to participate in EXECUTREK, which brings together civilian employers and gives them a chance to witness reservists in action.  This event is hosted by the Canadian Forces Liaison Council (CFLC) who is a group of business and educational leaders that volunteer their time to promote the training needs of the Primary Reserve force to civilian employers.  The LMSCP staff, along with civilian employers, were brought to the Chilcotin training area to watch reservists from 39 Canadian Brigade Group during Exercise Cougar Defender 2013.  We were also fortunate to participate in a low-level tactical helicopter flight, thanks to the airmen and airwomen of 408 Tactical Helicopter Squadron, and try our luck with with the C7 rifle and C6 general machine gun.
