The Esquimalt MFRC has two offices locations.  CPAC is located in Colwood and is home to our daycare. Signal Hill is located close to the Dockyard Gate in Esquimalt and is primary location of our counselling offices. The MFRC also has a facility in Colwood for Out-of-School Care.

We look forward to meeting you in person and having you visit our Centre to become familiar with the wide variety of services offered to families and the community. 

In 1991, the Department of National Defence officially recognized the important contributions military families make to the Canadian Forces. It established the Military Family Support Program, and authorized the creation of Military Family Resource Centres at each Canadian Forces installation. Today, the Esquimalt MFRC is one of 32 MFRCs located in Canada and abroad. Like all MFRCs, we are a community-based organization with the sole responsibility of addressing the needs of the military family. 

The Esquimalt MFRC is a registered charitable organization. Our charitable tax number is 138070578 RR0001.
