MFRC Veteran Family Program

Transitioning out of the military and into the civilian world can be both an exciting and challenging time for military members and their families. The Veteran Family Program is available to help with a family’s transition. The program extends the MFRC’s mandate to cover medically-releasing Canadian Armed Forces members, medically-released veterans and their families.

About the VFP

How it works
There is no formal program to register for. If you need assistance, give us a call. We’ll assess your needs and work with you during your transition.

Who qualifies
Medically-releasing CAF members, medically-released veterans and their families will be able to access the MFRC after their release date.

What services are available
There are many existing MFRC services relevant to military members and their families transitioning to civilian life.  We can provide:

  • One-on-one support navigating the civilian health care, employment, and mental health systems
  • Help finding appropriate community resources for a family member
  • Short-term counselling or social work services
  • Transition programs and workshops

If you move
If you move away from Greater Victoria, you may still access some services at the Esquimalt MFRC at a distance depending on the needs. We will work with each individual on a case-by-case basis to assist you in finding support in your new location.

Get involved
Help us shape this program.  If you are a medically-releasing CAF member or a family member, give us input by contacting us.
