OTTAWA – A simpler way to access information about morale and welfare programs and services for Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members, Veterans and their families is now available online at www.cfmws.com/YourServices .
The Morale and Welfare Services Directory is a user-friendly online resource that provides a detailed catalog of all programs offered by Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services (CFMWS) to the military community.
“The Morale and Welfare Services Directory is a one-stop shop that will help take the guesswork out of service eligibility,” said Commodore Mark Watson, Director General Morale and Welfare Services.
“Many of our community members may not know about the services that are available to them, and this resource gives them a simple place to find the answers.”
Upon arriving at the website, CAF members, Veterans and their families simply select the category that best matches them.
They will be directed to a list of services that may benefit them with links to learn more about the individual program or service.
To meet the needs of eligible members, CFMWS provides an extensive collection of programs and services on bases and wings across Canada, abroad and online including casualty support management, transition services, deployment support, family services, financial services, fitness and sports, recreation and retail services.
While all the military community are eligible for some services, many Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services programs are tailored to meet the needs of particular community members and are only available to select patrons.
