Military Families in Canada
The Military Families in Canada Initiative
is a collaborative effort to increase the availability and accessibility of services and supports to military families across Canada and to educate and inform the greater community about what the military lifestyle represents.
The goal of the initiative is to build awareness, capacity, competency, and community through knowledge mobilization
. This goal will be reached through a number of projects, one of which is an on-line, interactive knowledge network.
The interactive knowledge network will connect community clinicians, researchers, community organizations and the general public.
