Partners & Veterans Organizations
Transitions to Communities is a collaborative project led by the Mood Disorders Society of Canada with support from Employment and Social Development Canada and Veteran Affairs Canada.
Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC)
Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) is the department of the Government of Canada responsible for developing, managing and delivering social programs and services.
Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC)
Veterans Affairs Canada deeply values the contribution that Veterans have made to the development of our nation and we honour the sacrifices they have made in the defence of freedom and the pursuit of world peace. In expressing Canada’s gratitude to them, we strive to exemplify many of the same principles which they represent – integrity, respect, service and commitment, accountability, and teamwork.
A key component of the Transition to Communities project is the coordinated involvement of Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) in the development of this pilot project and their in-kind contribution support through working with the project partners in developing the research methodology.
This innovative pilot site project will provide outcomes data on significant key areas of concern for all Canadians. As part of the project, MDSC will collaborate and work very closely to collect and analyze our measurable outcomes that will inform policy for reducing risk factors for homelessness, unemployment and other social determinants of health of veterans.
The Transitions to Communities program works with employers across the country and greatly values our partnerships. Employers are a major component of the project and we seek out new employer partnerships for involvement in supporting and expanding the project’s success and reach.
