Veterans Transition Services

You have worked tremendously hard for  our country; you’ve gained significant leadership experiences, and you have been tasked with substantial responsibilities in uniquely challenging and formative situations.  We are here to help you translate the unique potential of the full range of your experience in the Canadian Armed Forces to civilian work through a proven process and partnership with a certified Professional Transition Coach.

At Bright Wire Leadership our professional coaches are experts in transition. We support veterans through the various work and career transitions involved in moving from working in the Armed Forces to the corporate or entrepreneurial work world. We are passionate about enabling the possibilities of a veteran’s potential and we understand that the transition for veterans is not always easy.  

It is our ambition that all veterans are respected for the experience they have gained in the Canadian Armed Forces; for all they have done, and all they will do. We want all veterans to be afforded a clear and effective approach to navigating the transition to civilian life, for continued career success outside of the military.
