UPEI, Veterans Affairs Canada partner on services for veterans

January 16, 2020

The University of Prince Edward Island has partnered with Veterans Affairs Canada to improve and develop new services for veterans and their families. The agreement will facilitate a streamlined collaboration between the two organizations in clinical, recruitment, training, and educational services. The partnership will also give UPEI students employment opportunities and Veterans Affairs Canada a pool of potential employees with relevant experience. "What it does is provide the type of applicant that Veterans Affairs needs," said Minister of Veterans Affairs Lawrence MacAulay. "The fact is we need psychologists, and we don't have psychologists — the university is going to help provide that." CBC (PE)
