What is the Veteran Family Program (VFP)
The Veterans Family Program is a four year pilot project to provide medically releasing CAF members and their families’ access to the Military Family Services Program for two years after release. These programs include; the Family Information Line, Family Force, and seven Military Family Resources Centres. The Halifax & Region MFRC is one of the seven pilot MFRCs and will be expanding existing programs to assist Veterans and their families with the transition to civilian life.
The VFP allows a medically released/releasing CAF member and their family to still have access to the MFRC after release (which was never the case previously) and gives them and their family a way to bring to our attention anything lacking from other organizations that they may be referred to by the Integrated Personnel Support Centre (IPSC).
