Mission of the Military Family Services Program
To contribute to the well-being of Canadian Armed Forces families; enabling a mission-ready force that protects Canadians and Canadian interests across the country and around the world.
Military Family Resource Centres
Located on Canadian Armed Forces Bases and Wings local Military Family Resource Centres are the hub of military communities. MFRCs provide programs and services that empower and encourage strong, independent individuals and families. The model chosen for the delivery of military family services is one of family support and community development.
Each centre is a not-for-profit organization, managed by a volunteer board of directors, represented by a majority of military family members. Board members are elected by the community. They assess local needs, in order to avoid duplication of community services and resources, while determining priorities, providing leadership and the mandated delivery of the national Military Family Services Program.
