Comprehensive Military Family Plan

In order to help stabilize family life for CAF members who constantly face the unique demands and conditions of military lifestyle including frequent relocations, CFMWS is developing a Comprehensive Military Family Plan (CMFP), on behalf of the CAF’s Commander, Military Personnel Command.

As part of fulfilling initiative 24 of the Defence Policy Strong, Secure, Engaged, our staff has been dedicated to conducting sound research, gaps analysis and validate community needs assessments to build a plan that will help military families mitigate the demands and conditions of service to the Canadian Armed Forces.

To inform the development of the CMFP the following research has been undertaken, with a view of improving the system of care and support for CAF members and their families.
