Military Family Services use virtual programs to bring quality, interactive, and informative workshops, meetings and recordings to all CAF families, regardless of their posted location. We do this using two on-line meeting programs called WebEx and Zoom. We utilize these mediums because our families are spread out across Canada, the U.S. and around the world. The virtual meeting rooms allow us to connect and engage with each other from our homes and offices. Wacth for event flyers, calendar events, email invitations from staff that will direct you to which of these 2 platforms will be utilized for each meeting.
National Online Programs

All WebEx meetings are protected by a highly reliable and secure network.
