Veterans Affairs Canada Evaluation of the Career Transition Program - September 2016 The Career Transition Services (CTS) Program evaluation was conducted in accordance with Veterans Affairs Canada’s (VAC) approved Multi-Year Risk-Based Evaluation Plan 2012-17. The Terms and Conditions of CTS were valid until March 31, 2016. The Career Transition Services Program was established in 2006 under the authority of the Canadian Forces Members and Veterans Re-establishment and Compensation Act. Policies and practices have been modified over the years but its essential mission has remained unchanged; i.e., to provide eligible Veterans and survivors with practical help finding a job as they transition from military to civilian life. CTS reimburses costs for services such as career counselling, job-search training and job-finding assistance for eligible Veterans and survivors to a lifetime maximum of $1,000 (including tax). The current program design differs from that originally established in 2006 with respect to eligibility, dollar limits and service providers. The evaluation examined the relevance and performance of the Career Transition Services Program, and was conducted in accordance with Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat (TBS) policy requirements and related TBS guidance. The evaluation findings and conclusions are based on the analysis of multiple lines of qualitative and quantitative evidence. 2016-09-30 2019-01-05 Veterans Affairs Canada vac.opengovernment-gouvernementouvert.acc@canada.ca Government and PoliticsVeterans Affairs CanadaVACInternal AuditingEvaluationCareer Transition ServicesCTSVeterans Evaluation of the Career Transition Program - September 2016HTML http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/about-us/reports/departmental-audit-evaluation/2016-evaluation-career-transition-program Evaluation of the Career Transition Program - September 2016HTML http://www.veterans.gc.ca/fra/about-us/reports/departmental-audit-evaluation/2016-evaluation-career-transition-program Evaluation of the Career Transition Program - September 2016PDF http://www.veterans.gc.ca/pdf/deptReports/2016evaluation-career-transition-program.pdf Evaluation of the Career Transition Program - September 2016PDF http://www.veterans.gc.ca/pdf/deptReports/2016evaluation-career-transition-program_f.pdf
