Our Story

Whether you’re a Canadian Armed Forces member (CAF), veteran, family member, loved one or friend, you understand and appreciate the unique challenges that make being in the military an occupation different from any other. At the Calgary Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC) we aim to help lessen the impact of these challenges. We support families of CAF members within our service area of Southern Alberta, including Red Deer and south to Lethbridge. Our programs and services include prevention, support and intervention services, social activities and events (Stampede Breakfast, Christmas party), personal development workshops, family separation and reunification support, counselling, crisis intervention, child and youth programs, discounted admission passes, and more. The Calgary MFRC is located in the Currie Barracks, on the west side of Crowchild Trail SW The MFRC is in the General Waters Building (41 CBG HQ), in Room #128
