Be Prepared Ensure you have a plan in place

The MFRC facilitates access to Emergency Child Care services (ECC) and Emergency Respite Child Care services (ERCC) in emergency situations, when all other supports fall through. For the provision of an efficient and timely service, please read our Information Guide, ensuring you submit your completed Emergency Child Care Plan to the MFRC.

Eligibility and subsidized funding requests for ECC/ERCC are approved at the discretion of the MFRC Executive Director; each case is unique and financial assistance for ECC/ERCC is assessed individually, as per Military Family Services ECC policy. You must retain all receipts to qualify for any financial subsidy and reimbursement.  To learn more about ECC reference documents and options for your family, call the Family Information Line at 1-800-866-4546.

For further information, please email the MFRC Child and Youth Coordinator, or call 403-544-5567.
