Health Promotion

Strengthening the Forces (StF) is the CAF's health promotion program designed to enable CAF members to increase control over and to improve their overall health and well-being.

Good health is essential to the well-being of CAF members and to the operational effectiveness. Maintaining a high level of health improves one’s ability to perform effectively and safely on CAF operations and to enjoy a high quality of life.

PSP Portage is supported by both the Moose Jaw and Winnipeg health promotion departments to provide CAF members, DND/NPF employees, and CAF families access to StF programs, workshops, and campaigns.

Our goal is to provide knowledge and tools to make healthy lifestyle choices. For information about any of the following programs please contact the PSP Deputy Manager.
