Veterans WorkLife Social Enterprise


The Veterans Transition Support team at First Unitarian Congregation of Ottawa (FirstU) is currently developing a Veterans WorkLife Social Enterprise funding application for submission to Veterans Affairs Canada.

Veterans and their family members are invited to participate in a Focus Group where they can offer their viewpoints, suggestions, and feedback. As such, they will be key players in the creation of a new program to support veterans’ transition from military to civilian life.

Discussion will include:

  • Who is FirstU?
  • What is Social Enterprise?
  • What is a Positive Inquiry approach?
  • What are your potential needs and interests as you move into civilian life?
  • Using technology as a self-management tool
  • Building on the strengths and successes of previous military experience
