Transition Centre

In coordination with our partners, CAF Transition Group provides professional, personalized, and standardized transition services and casualty support to CAF members, veterans, and their families.

For those who are ill or injured, the option to be posted to the Transition Group to focus on recovery, rehabilitation, and reintegration will continue to be an option for consideration by the CAF member’s chain of command, which when actioned early in the recovery stage, will ideally increase the number of members who are able to return to their CAF duties.

Mon - Fri: 0800 - 1600
