Military and Veteran Student Resources


As noted on its website, the Canadian Military, Veteran and Family Connected Campus Consortium (CMVF3C) is a growing network of representatives from willing colleges, polytechniques, universities, CEGEP; the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC), Military Family Services, 3rd party providers, associated partners, military recruits, members and Veterans (MMVs) pursuing post-secondary education (PSE), and their families. 

As an invited member of the CMVF3C since May 2022, the U of R is taking steps to enhance the educational opportunities available to current members and veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces in recognition of their service, and has committed to continued involvement in this nationwide initiative to develop Military and Veteran Friendly Campuses (MVFCs).

Canadian military members, Veterans and their families are committed to the service of our country and integral to the fibre of our post-secondary and civilian communities.  The Canadian Military, Veteran and Family Connected Campus Consortium

About the U of R's MVFC

The U of R has already taken significant steps toward becoming a MVFC, including: participating in the CMVF3C; engaging a fieldwork student to research and recommend additional opportunities; engaging in a partnership with the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI); and making connections with other relevant and interested external and internal partners.  

This initiative is new and the development of additional programs, supports and services for MMVs is underway in consultation with the CMVF3C and our other external partners. Want to know more or get involved? Fill out this form for updates and information about the U of R's MVFC.
