Canada has a long history of supporting military families. In fact, 2016 will mark a pivotal milestone for dedicated programs and services intended to support military families across Canada.

Established formally in 1991, the Military Family Services Program honours, acknowledges and supports families’ contributions to the Canadian Armed Forces as the strength behind the uniform.

The Vanier Institute of the Family has been proud to collaborate with Military Family Services in the Canadian Military and Veteran Families Leadership Circle – an initiative that strengthens community support for military and Veteran families through knowledge mobilization, relationship-building and the coordination of existing and emerging projects and services.
