MFRC Board of Directors


Your Board Representing the Community with Strategic Leadership

Message from the Chair:
Happy Pride Month!

The TMFRC is proud to be an inclusive, diverse community, welcoming people regardless of gender, orientation, or self-identification. Echoing the direction of the Chief of Defense Staff, we encourage celebration and recognition of the multi-faceted nature of our community.

Military members are encouraged to attend Pride events, and the wearing of uniforms is authorized when participating. The CAF recognizes that the strength of the team comes from the diversity of its people, and visible examples of that are necessary to engender inclusion and support a culture free of discrimination. 

As representatives of our community, the Board of Directors of the TMFRC is committed to empower military members, veterans and their families by treating them with integrity, tolerance, equality and respect. This is fundamental to achieving our vision of creating "strong, resilient families". 

We proudly support and celebrate the LGBTQ2A+ members within our military family.

What We Do

The Toronto MFRC is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, with a mandate of majority military family member representation, which reports through a governance and oversight structure to the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services Branch (CFMWS) through Military Family Services (MFS).

Board members are elected by the Community. We assess local needs, in order to avoid duplication of community services and resources, while determining priorities, providing leadership, and ensuring the mandated delivery of the national Military Family Services Program. The Board of Directors provides governance and oversight through the lens of proper support for our families, helping the Executive Director in setting strategic direction and guiding implementation of activities and programming.  

The Board welcomes new members! Are you a passionate advocate for military and veteran families? Do you want to help the TMFRC improve our offerings and meet our goals? Consider joining the Board!

We meet the third Wednesday of each month, at 6:00 pm, at the Centre. 
Unable to attend in person? We can accommodate you via phone/web!
