Our Family Wellness Team of the MFRC-NCR provides resources, programs, and support to the families of members of the Canadian Armed Forces prior to, during, and after a separation due to deployment.
A separation is defined as the assignment of military personnel on unaccompanied duty away from their normal workplace, including temporary duty, extended course, unaccompanied posting (IR) or overseas missions.
The MFRC-NCR provides support to the families of Regular Forces and Reservists who are experiencing a separation both within the country and overseas. We are there through all stages of the separation to ensure families are well supported and connected. Please remember that all of our Family Separation and Reunion services are available to spouses, parents, children, and siblings. We know that the need for comradery, and having an outlet to safely express worries, hopes, and fears, is just as important for all family members, and we hope to provide you with that outlet.
As part of their DAG, CAF members are required to complete a Family Information Form and bring it in person to the MFRC-NCR any time they are being tasked away (i.e. deployment, course, IR).
CAF families with dependents under their care are required to complete a Family Care Plan Form and submit it to their unit to be kept on the CAF member's file. A completed Family Care Plan is designed to support individual and unit operational readiness.
