Welcome to the site for the Canadian Association of Military Family Resource Centres.
The idea of a National Association has been around for a long time. In 2002 Dr Ainslie Clark, National Defence Chief of Review Services during the Military Family Services Program review recommended that a national association of MFRCs be created. Since then various committees made up of MFRC Board members and Executive Directors have tried to forward the issue with little success. In 2010 twenty MFRCs pooled resources to fund a “feasibility” study on a National Association. In 2011 due to the difficulty getting national consensus a group of Centres determined the benefits of a national association were so great they formed a working group, received support from DGPFSS and DMFS, pooled resources and worked to establish the association.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed individuals can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead
