To better communicate with its members and their families, the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) has launched the CAF Mobile App.
The app is expected to provide access to a variety of tools and services to the Defence community while also providing the latest useful, unclassified information about Defence directly from the Chief of the Defence Staff and his command team.
Developed at the request of the CDS Gen. Jonathan Vance, the app has resources on compensation and benefits, relocation, education, and training, legal, morale and welfare, OUTCAN and information on Veterans Affairs.
“Want to check for housing at 3 Canadian Division Support Base Edmonton? There is a section for that. Need the latest numbers for family support? It has that, too. Want to see the latest Canadian Forces General (CANFORGEN) message?” according to the CAF website.
The app also allows users to stay current on social media posts from Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
The CAF Mobile App is free on both iOS, Android and Blackberry. Install it today
