Newly Posted Families Support to Spouses/Children

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:

As of 1 April 2018, support is available to help families with the transition into a new community. Funds will be available up to a maximum of $300 per family member to cover the cost of one club/activity/sport for the first year only after being posted.
  • Family member must be reflected on your MPRR.
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.
