Canadian military families have clearly shown their significant contribution through the past twenty-five years of military operations. They make a direct contribution to operational efficiency and for this reason must be recognized in the evolving policies of defence as an integral and vital part of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) and must be supported by all levels of government through the Military Family Resource Centres (MFRC), governed by and for families;
In the past twenty-five years, that military and veterans’ families have been on duty 24/7 for months, if not for years, considering the significant sacrifices made by military families both personally and professionally and that military families have made the supreme sacrifice and that thousands live with a member who is psychologically injured;
3. Considering the twenty-five years of direct experience of the MFRCs with military families in an intensive operational context, the expertise acquired in matters of essential services for military families and that they have been created by and for military families;
The MFRCs have 25 years of direct experience with military families in intense operational circumstances, the expertise acquired in matters of essential services for military families and that they have been created by and for military families.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Minister of National Defence to include military families in the next Defence policy as an integral and essential part of the mission of the CAF and officially recognize the MFRCs as being the official service providers for military families and to attribute to them as clients, with the resources required, veterans and their families.
