A CAREER IN RECREATION From the pool deck, Terri-Lyn Harris watches carefully during a leisure swim at the CFB Borden pool. As a lifeguard, she is responsible for the safety of over 100 participants, a role she takes very seriously and is proud to have. “I like being able to give back to the military community and make a difference in military families lives.” Harris has been a PSP employee since 1992. As a military spouse she started her career in Petawawa, then followed her husband to Comox, Borden, Winnipeg and back to Borden again. She remembers when it was not so easy to find a job. “In the early years of my marriage, if you had a base housing address some employers would not hire you.” Luckily for Terri-Lyn, she found employment with PSP and was able to match her passion and interests with her career. She encourages other military spouses to do the same. ARE YOU A MILITARY SPOUSE LOOKING FOR A JOB? We understand that finding and retaining employment can be a challenge for a military spouse for a variety of reasons. Check out the newly created Military Spousal Employment Network, developed as part of a suite of employment and entrepreneurship programs and services available to military spouses. The Network is a self-directed resource where you can access employers and employment opportunities. The tools available include an online job board and virtual career fairs with participating employers located in multiple locations across Canada.
