Twitter Chat: Military Families in Transition to Civilian Life

Diverse, resilient and strong, Canada’s military and Veteran families are a source of pride for the country and they are an essential part of our nation’s family landscape. Through their service and dedication, Canadian Armed Forces members and their families have earned our respect and deserve our recognition and full support.

On Tuesday, April 5, the Vanier Institute of the Family will co-host the first in a series of Twitter Chats with Veterans Ombudsman Guy Parent from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. EDT. The theme of this chat will be military families in transition to civilian life, and we welcome Veterans, families, service providers and experts to participate in online discussions about the experiences of these families in transition.

This series of Twitter Chats will facilitate engagement between the Veterans Ombudsman and Canada’s Veteran community, allowing those who have served our country to voice their concerns and give feedback, and to guide the Ombudsman’s priorities.

To participate, tweet at @VetsOmbudsman (English) or @OmbudVeterans (French) and use/follow the #OVOChat hashtag. Over the course of the chat, we will be posing questions, sharing information and learning from military families as well as from those who study, serve and support them.
