I received a 2 year continued service agreement costing $12,000 in effect fot individuals who 'leave voluntarily' within the allotted timeframe. Will I actually have to pay for the costs of training if I don't end up liking the job? Are these enforceable? What are the parameters of 'leaving voluntarily?' Thank you!

Unfortunately, more companies that you could formulate a career from then retire are suffering from a high turnover during COVID-19. This is one of many strategies being offered. Do your homework and read their policy and procedures for this particular topic. God speed!


Educational repayment contracts are not legally enforceable in most, if not all, Canadian provinces.

The only one I think twice about breaking is one with the DOD. The MPs could (and probably would) throw you in the brig until repayment was complete.

In America the federal debt owed goes to the Treasury Financial Management Services to collect and it tanks your credit score.
