“Supporting the families of ill and injured Canadian Forces personnel and the families of the fallen.”
The Family Liaison Officer is an MFRC social worker who is located within the Transition Centre, connecting both Centres to ensure that the widest variety of support is offered to families of CF personnel who are coping with an illness, injury or special need.
The Family Liaison Officer is available to help families cope with all phases of the CF member’s recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration, whether he or she is returning to service or transitioning through the release process. Family Liaison Officers also provide tailored assistance to the families of the fallen, including professional counselling and referrals to appropriate civilian resources.
Family Liaison Officer services are free of charge, and are delivered by experienced professionals who understand the challenges of the CF lifestyle.
These Services include:
- Referrals to mental health services for adults and children;
- Access to education/prevention-based programs in the community
- Short-term individual or group support for families of ill/injured and deceased Canadian Forces members; and
- Outreach support for families in the following districts:
