Military community asked to share opinions on military family programs

Voice your opinions to influence change within your military community by taking the Community Needs Assessment. Administered by both Personnel Support Programs and MFRCs, military members, veterans and their families can share their opinions until Sept. 23.

“The Community Needs Assessment asks you to share your most pressing challenges and to define your needs as a military member, veteran or family member. We ask you to share your opinion irrespective of whether you use PSP or MFRC services regularly, occasionally, or not at all.

“This information will give us a better picture of which issues military personnel, veterans and their families think are most important, and of how well our current services address those key needs,” according to Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services website.

This web-based survey is strictly confidential and asks participants to report on any problems they may have encountered in the past year through a series of short answer, yes or no, and multiple choice questions. The questions are aimed at determining whether services were available for your particular problem and if the current resources meet the community’s needs.

All information is kept confidential and following the collection of data a final report will be drafted by CFMWS. Only embers of the CFMWS research team will have access to individual responses.

The results will be made available to the community upon request by contact Military Family Services.

The survey will help determine CFMWS if their services are currently meeting the needs of military families and what areas need attention.

The survey can take anywhere from five to 20 minutes to complete.
