Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services has created a Child Care Primary Office. This is a temporary team responsible within CFMWS for analyzing military families' current and future child care needs to develop possible solutions and recommendations to address child care accessibility challenges.

We are on a mission to develop child care solutions that are:

  • high-quality
  • comprehensive
  • sustainable
  • accessible
  • equitable

and promote positive child development, familial wellbeing, stronger Canadian Armed Forces communities and operational readiness.
