Did you know? Military Family Services Aren’t Just for Regular Force Members!
Magazine Article / January 27, 2020 / Project number: RCAF-Excelsior-Winter-2020-06
Military families come in all forms: they consist of any Canadian Armed Forces' personnel, whether Regular and Reserve Force, and include their spouses, children, parents, relatives of significance, or anyone else who self-identifies as the family of a military member.
Military Family Services recognizes that Reserve Force members sustain and support the Canadian Armed Forces; therefore, they and their families are entitled to the same support and services as Regular members. These services can include, but are not limited to:
- Military Family Resource Centres (MFRCs)
- Deployment support
- Veteran Family Program Support
- Education and training
- Personal development
- Education programming (parenting, psychoeducational, deployment, financial, etc.)
- Emergency child care
- Health care referral
- Employment services;
- Referral to community services
- And more
To learn more about the many services available to you and your family, contact the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services Directory at: https://www.cfmws.com/en/OurServices/ServicesDirectory/Pages/default.aspx
RCAF Reservists and their families also can receive services from their closest MFRC location, found online at: https://www.cafconnection.ca/National/Local-Sites/Connect-to-Your-Local-CAF-Community.aspx
or through the Family Information Line at 1-800-866-4546.
