Deployment Programs and Services -
When you register that you are deploying through the New Brunswick MFRC we will ensure that you and your family stay connected and informed of programs and services offered at NBMFRC.
Pre-Deployment & Reunion Packages - When the NBMFRC receives the Family Deployment Contact Form, an information package will be sent to the person indicated on the form. The package includes a family handbook, information on preparing for deployment, preparing for reunion, Family Information Line, emergency child care options and contact information, information about the Canadian Forces Member Assistance Program (CFMAP), a greeting letter and tips for mailing care packages.
Pre-Deployment & Reunion Briefings -These information sessions, offered both in person or virtually, will look at the cycle of deployment and reunion. We will discuss common reactions and ways of coping while your loved one is away as well as preparing for homecoming. Reach out to our Military Lifestyle Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment.
Warm Heart Line - The main purpose of the Warm Heart Line (WHL) is to ensure that families of CAF members who are away from home remain connected to Base and community resources and services during separations due to operational demands. The WHL is not a counselling service nor is it the role of the WHL volunteers to give advice. Their role is to offer a friendly voice and a listening ear. All contacts are strictly confidential.
Free Deployment Child Care- Is your loved one away? Would you like a well-deserved break from the kids? Or maybe the kids would enjoy a break from you? Free childcare will be provided one Saturday of each month from 10am - 3pm at NBMFRC.
Pre-registration is required in order to ensure child- staff ratios. Please check your monthly calendar for dates.
Free Overseas Mail Drop-Off Location - This free service has been put into place to enable families of deployed personnel to send parcels free of charge to their loved ones presently serving overseas. This service is available to all families, however the NBMFRC is not responsible for any loss, theft or damage caused to the items.
Proper addressing is important! You must include your return address with telephone number and contents must be listed on the outside. For correct mailing addresses overseas please request the address from your loved one.
Please check with the MFRC for mailing guidelines, as this can vary from centre to centre and also with different deployments.
Special Events - Special events are held throughout the year for families with a loved one away. Check the monthly calendar for upcoming events.
