Easing Your Transition

Releasing from the Canadian Armed Forces can be challenging for members and families, but even more so when the release is the result of a medical situation. When a Canadian Armed Forces member makes the transition from active service to veteran status, their family does too. The Veteran Family Program is here to help ease that transition by providing enhanced information and referral services and specialized transition programs

The Veteran Family Program benefits the medically releasing Canadian Armed Forces members, medically released Veterans and their families by helping them navigate the complex process of releasing, the challenges that may arise, and the sometimes unexpected impact on the social, emotional, and financial wellbeing.  Programs and services are always aimed to meet individual needs, and work towards finding solutions and support. 

Connect with the MFRC to set up a one-on-one session and for a copy of the Veteran Family Journal.
