WithYouWithMe is an endorsed partner of this program, setup with Shared Services Canada to provide Job Opportunities to Canadian Military Veterans.

The Cyber Workforce Enablement Program is a procurement vehicle designed to train transitioning military personnel and veterans to be our cyber workforce.

Veterans possess similar traits to highly successful cyber resources – by providing high demand cyber career training to hundreds of veterans, the program is leveraging their skills to build a cyber workforce and bridge the gap between requirement and security cleared capable resources for both the federal government and businesses across Canada.
