Resources for veterans

Many resources, in addition to the MFRC, are available to help you access important information and services before, during and after being released from the Canadian Armed Forces.

Family Information Line (FIL)

Trained Family Information Line counsellors offer confidential, bilingual information, referral and crisis support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and can help connect serving members, released Veterans and their families to resources. To speak with someone directly for any inquiries about the Veteran Family Program, the FIL can be reached at 1-800-866-4546.
