Healthy relationships

Healthy Relationships Campaign Call for Participants

Have you overcome challenges in your relationship or implemented positive strategies to benefit your family or relationships? We want to hear from you.

Military Family Services is looking for military members and their families to participate in an upcoming Healthy Relationships Campaign. The campaign’s aim is to raise awareness about the roads we take to achieve and maintain positive and healthy relationships.

Your experience is valuable and sharing your story can help others in the Canadian Armed Forces community.

Five videos will be produced by the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services Creative Team in the coming months. The completed clips will be shared online during the Healthy Relationships Campaign from October 14-19, 2019. Other selected submissions will be used in the photo campaign for social media, either during the campaign or throughout the year.

The five videos will showcase military members and their families with the goal of inspiring others to reach out for help when faced with challenges. Whether you received support from programs or services from the Family Information Line, your local Military Family Resource Centre, Padres or Chaplains, counsellors or social workers, or from other support systems from across your wider community, we want to hear from you.

We encourage the participation of all military members including leadership. If you would like to be considered to be a part of the campaign, please fill out this form. Please be aware that you can withdraw your participation at any time prior to filming.

If you are curious about participating in the campaign but would first like to know more, please contact Carley Robb-Jackson, Policy Development and Research Manager, Military Family Services at

MFS will reply to all who share their stories. The submissions will be carefully reviewed and five in total will be chosen from across the Canadian Armed Forces to participate in the videos. Other selected submissions will be used in the photo campaign on social media, either during the campaign or throughout the year.

Submissions will be accepted until 5pm EST, Friday, August 30, 2019.
