About Toronto Military Family Resource Centre

The military community established the Toronto Military Family Resource Centre (Toronto MFRC) in 1992 to foster the unique strength of families within the military. We are a non-profit, volunteer-led and supported organization. In 1999, the Toronto MFRC began offering full-time child care through our Children’s Playgarden child care centre - a much-needed service for both military and civilian families.

The Department of National Defence, through its Military Family Services Program, is the Toronto MFRC’s primary funder. Fees for service and fundraising activities are other sources of revenue. The Centre works in close partnership with the 4th Canadian Division Support Group Commander.

The Toronto MFRC supports military families in six key areas:

Personal development & community integration

Volunteer development and involvement

Deployment support

Support services

Children, youth and parenting support programs

Children’s Playgarden (full-time child care)
