Helping Children Stay in Touch

Support Our Troops has received in excess of $1.8M from the proceeds of the sale of Alberta Specialty License Plates. The intention of the Alberta Government is that these funds must be used to support military families in the Province of Alberta. Over the last three years, the funds have been used in a myriad of ways to support CAF families: scholarships, camps, medical/dental travel, site specific programming at MFRCs etc. CFMWS is pleased to announce additional support to assist families residing at 4 Wing Cold Lake:

For families of deployed members, up to $250 per family will be available to assist with the purchase of a tablet/iPad. The intent of this support is to help children stay connected via social media with the parent that is away from home.
  • This is a one-time purchase.
  • Deployment must be a minimum duration of 90 days;
  • iPhones are not included.
To apply for reimbursement, CAF members are to complete Schedule A and Schedule H to the Support our Troops Program, attach detailed receipts dated after 1 April 2018 and a copy of your MPRR.  Registration for NPP Direct Funds Transfer is also required if you have not previously registered.
 
Schedule A, H and all supporting documentation is to be hand-delivered to Teresa Boisvert, SISIP Financial Counsellor, located in the CANEX Mall. Once approved by national authorities, reimbursement will be deposited directly into your bank account.
