Federal government pledges to hire more injured vets

Veterans Affairs Canada is set to expand a program designed to give injured veterans priority hiring in the public service after jobs dried up due to federal cuts, CBC News has learned.

Changes to the program geared to Afghanistan veterans will likely include extending the current two-year eligibility period for medically released soldiers, according to information provided to CBC News Network’s Power & Politics.

Niklaus Schwenker, spokesman for Veterans Affairs Minister Steven Blaney, said the department is currently working on that and other “concrete proposals” to expand the hiring initiatives and boost the number of veterans working throughout the public service.

I received this email a few days ago. I will be contacting VAC for more info.
"Please note that your priority file has been removed from the Priority Information Management System. As a result, you will no longer have access to the Priority Portal. If you have any questions regarding the reason for removal, please contact the human resources advisor in your home organization."
