The PEI Military Family Resource Centre (PEI MFRC), a non-for-profit organization governed by a Board of Directors, believes that military families play a vital role in the success of Canada’s men and women in uniform. To that end, the PEI MFRC is committed to ensuring that military families residing in Prince Edward Island thrive and that the people of Prince Edward Island recognize and support Canada’s men and women in uniform.

How the PEI Military Family Resource Centre can help
The programming being delivered by the PEI Military Family Resources Centres goes a long way to addressing the needs of military families. However, the PEI MFRC will not be satisfied with the status quo. Findings from the DND Ombudsman’s Family Study and Veterans Affairs Canada’s family research as well as consultation with PEI’s military families will be used to inform and develop new and innovative programming over the next five years.
The PEI Military Family Resource Centre recognizes the unique challenges of the military community on Prince Edward Island, which differ from their counterparts on larger regular force bases. The needs of the Island Military families are best met by those who know them the best . . . for families by families!
