The preference of veterans can be confusing. Not all Veterans are considered preferential for civilian employment at the federal level, and not all active services are part of Veterans` preference. Only veterans licensed or dismissed under honourable conditions of active service in the armed forces are entitled to the preference of veterans. This means that you must have been dismissed under an honourable or general dismissal. If you are a « retired member of the armed forces », you are not included in the definition of preference unless you are a Veteran with a disability, OR you have retired under the rank of a major or equivalent amount. In principle, there are two types of preferential rights holders: deactivated (10 preferential points) and not deactivated (the 5-point preference is justified).
