Employment Info

Greater Victoria has excellent employment agencies and the MFRC is fortunate to have great working relationships with them. If you need help finding a job, we recommend that you get in contact with the appropriate agency in your community.

If you need employment assistance related to being a military family member new to the area, we have trained staff to provide guidance on gaining meaningful employment. There are also employment workshops and employer information sessions from time-to-time hosted at our facility in Colwood.
