Personal Development

At the Calgary MFRC, we know military families move frequently and that starting over in a new community is tough and stressful. We offer services and activities to help make that transition easier while enhancing their quality of life and promoting and supporting personal, family and community development.

The Calgary MFRC works to enhance the quality of life for new community members by promoting and supporting individual, family and community integration. Families are connected with necessary services, resources, professionals and other military families, helping make the transition to Calgary a pleasant one.

Services include welcome and relocation assistance, second language courses, referrals, career assistance, discounted attraction tickets, day trips, monthly social events, Stampede Breakfast, annual Christmas party and community outreach.

The MFRC also assists military family members who are looking for employment. The staff aid individuals with resume tips, post-secondary education resources and scholarships.
