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.
