Veteran Friendly Ontario Challenge

Aug 16, 2023 | Business Resources, News

Experience the value of Veteran talent, skills, and problem-solving, while increasing business owner competence in talent attraction, retention, and career management.

The Ontario Chamber of Commerce is excited to collaborate with True Patriot Love and Challenge Factory in introducing the Veteran Friendly Ontario (VFO) Challenge. This free program is designed for small- to medium-sized businesses (SME – up to 500 employees) to experience first-hand the value of Veteran talent, skills, and problem-solving, while increasing business owner competence in talent attraction, retention, and career management.

The program’s experiential training, support and resources will help Veterans develop a strong understanding of the needs and challenges faced by SMEs. Simultaneously, for SME business owners and hiring managers, the program will create opportunities to recognize and appreciate the talents, skills, and creative problem-solving abilities of Veterans.

Moreover, it will enhance the competence of business owners in areas such as talent attraction, retention, and career management. The ultimate objective is to bolster the financial resilience of both Veterans and SMEs and, possibly, create employment opportunities.
