This certification is awarded to employers who have demonstrated support for members of the Canadian Armed Forces, and an ability to help veterans transition from military to civilian careers.

The MET program is administered by Canada Company Military Employment Transition Employer Coalition.

“We have a strong understanding of Canadian military culture, as well as the value veterans bring to an organization like G4S,” says a company press release. “In Canada, many employees – from guards, to supervisors and upper management – come from military backgrounds, offering G4S a wealth of talent and prior industry-specific training.”

The MET program connects Canadian Armed Forces members and veterans with more than one hundred employers across Canada looking for employees with specific skill sets. G4S will continue to partner with the program in an effort to reach its goal of 10,000 veteran hires by 2023. As a certified “employer partner,” G4S has shown commitment to hiring and retaining ex-military personnel.
