Calian Technologies Ltd. (TSX:CTY) is pleased to announce that last evening it was awarded the Military-Friendly Employer Partner Award from Canada Company as part of the Military Employment Transition Program's (MET) Award Ceremony.

Canada Company'S MET Program is an initiative developed to assist Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) Members, Reservists and Veterans looking to find jobs in the civilian workforce. The program serves as a bridge between the CAF and Canada Company's "Military Friendly Employer Partners."

The mandate of the program is to establish, foster, and drive the connection and relationship between CAF members and Veterans, and the leaders in the public and private sector who will offer employment opportunities.

"At Calian, we take great pride in our relationship with the Canadian Armed Forces and our involvement with the MET program," said Kevin Ford, President and CEO. "The team at Calian continues to strengthen as a direct result of hiring military veterans and reservists."
