Royal Canadian Air Force Family Connection Program

Making the RCAF a better home than ever before.

Family Connection Program volunteer connectors stand ready to assist families settle into their new communities during the posting season and to support families who are separated from their loved ones due to military service.

The Family Connection Program ─formerly known as the Family Sponsor Program─ was developed by the RCAF Family Support Team (FST) based on consultations with military families at RCAF Wings and units across the country. The main goal of the program is to build community and improve communications at the wing and unit level. It’s designed to ease the stress of relocation and service-related separation by connecting families to each other and to local leadership. When we stand together we are stronger than when we stand alone.

RCAF units work in conjunction with local Military Family Resource Centres (MFRCs) to provide the Family Connection Program to any family posted to an RCAF unit. Together they engage, build and maintain a team of volunteer connectors at each Wing. The volunteer connectors pro-actively reach out to families that are newly posted or affected by duty-related separations. There will always be challenges.
