Military spouse employment initiative

The Military Spouse Employment Initiative (MSEI) inventory is an effective staffing option to fill temporary or permanent vacancies across all Government of Canada departments and agencies.

Why hire a military spouse?

Military families face many challenges when they relocate for service reasons. Spouses often leave high paying jobs that require unique skill sets and must find employment in a new location. In many cases, this leads to entry-level positions. The MSEI can help alleviate this burden by connecting military spouses with hiring managers across the Government of Canada (GoC).

Hiring managers: If you are seeking skilled and motivated candidates residing in traditionally hard-to-staff locations, the MSEI can prove invaluable to you. By supporting military families, you can help strengthen Canada’s operational readiness, increase retention and improve the well-being of those who fulfill Canada’s defence mission.

Accessing the inventory is fast and easy!

There are candidates in the MSEI across all Canadian provinces and territories looking for jobs in the following work streams:
