Parents & Caregivers
The North Bay MFRC improves the quality of life of the military community by promoting individual, family, and community health and well-being.
Parenting is not easy however you are not alone. We offer support in regards to your child’s overall development.
We welcome families with special needs
Having a child with special needs requires you to become knowledgeable of various agencies and programs in your community.
We can help you make decisions that will enhance your child’s physical, language, emotional, social and educational development.
We can help you connect with the agencies that will meet your family’s needs. We are aware of the services available and funding sources that may help your family.
The North Bay MFRC offers the following resources to families:
- Parent Resource Library
- Children’s Video Library
- Individual support
- Regular articles in the MFRC Newsletters and Wing newspaper, the Shield
Child Care Registry
If you are looking for a babysitter, come into the LWCC and look through our Child Care Registry Binder.

The Navigator Project
If you are relocating we encourage you to surf the Navigator Project website. This informative website provides Canadian military families with access to various community agencies at the click of a mouse.
Families are able to surf the website before moving to another location across Canada or when a situation arises. Please keep in mind that new information specific to each MFRC is being added on a regular basis.
The Navigator Project recognizes that families are continually striving to meet various commitments no matter where they live. Family commitments can include: supporting a child or adult with special needs, an aging parent or loved one living in the same community or long distance and more.
For more information about the various resources within the city of North Bay and surrounding area or to find out more about how the MFRC can support you and your family, please contact our Parenting Support Coordinator Diane Sarazin-Dubeau at 705-494-2011 ext 2056.
