Each deployment or separation due to military tasking comes with unique challenges and situations that may be unpredictable. In addition to all those stressors, the world is currently going through unprecedented times with a global pandemic which may affect some of these taskings in unexpected ways, whether it is through cancelled Home Leave Travel Assistance (HLTAs) or extended return dates. Along with these disappointments, being advised to stay home and avoid non-essential contact with others, it is hard to avoid the onslaught of information as it is posted on every platform and prevalent in everyone’s minds. With so much going on, the Military Family Resource Centre - National Capital Region (MFRC-NCR) strives to alleviate as many stressors in your life as possible through educational, psychosocial, financial (in emergencies), and social support.

Every military family has its own needs and challenges, whether you have children, no children, or are a parent of a military member. Included in this booklet are a few resources that may be new or a refresher on some of the available resources through the MFRC-NCR and the Military Family Services (MFS) of the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services (CFMWS).

We are available to you at any point before, during, and after this separation. If you have any questions regarding the content of this booklet, or if you require further support for you or your family members, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at family@mfrc-ncr.ca or 613-991-5051.

If you have concerns after-hours, you can always reach the Family Information Line (FIL) at 1-800-866-4546 to speak with a counsellor 24/7, or reach the Padres at any time through the Military Police at 613-820-0123 and ask to be transferred to the duty padre.
