The Way Forward – Easing the Transition Life Skills (Winter 2020)


The Way Forward is a group of online resources to assist the military member and their family transition from the military to civilian life.

Course Description

Welcome to “The Way Forward – Easing the Transition: Life Skills (Winter 2020)” Adjusting from military to civilian life can be both exciting and challenging for the member and family. Knowing what to expect and where to find assistance is important in creating a smooth transition to “Civvie Street”.

The goal of the resources is to assist members in their transition to civilian life and provide a preliminary tool to access resources that support them and their family’s holistic needs during the crucial period of transitioning out of the military.

The online resources will address key elements found when transitioning. The resources have been separated into five distinct units (Introduction, Family, Education and Employment, Mental Health and Resources). Found within these units are modules that will provide the material to help in the transition. The materials for each unit are available in English and French.

The goal of the online resource is to lessen the stress and frustration associated with transitioning out of the military.
