Welcome and Transition

The first stop for newcomers

Moving to a new community can be stressful, but we're here to help. The MFRC connects families with the information they need to get settled. Starting with the distribution of our Welcome Package before or upon arrival at 8 Wing Trenton and then support continues as needed. It could be information on education resources, activities and/or services on the base or in the surrounding communities. If you have a question, we will find an answer or the person who should be able to answer it. 

Local Information Booklet

We keep the community up to date on our programs, events and other relevant community services so you know what is available. Learn about upcoming events and programs through our quarterly magazine 8 Wing/CFB Trenton Family Support Services, our websites, The Contact newspaper, local newspapers and flyers, our monthly E-News and through our social media channels.

You can stop by anytime (during business hours) - the Trenton MFRC is your home-away-from-home! Come to visit, enjoy a coffee and see what we have to offer. Share your opinion and ideas and get involved.  We'd love to get to know you!
