New site, new connection

July 1, 2017 by Legion Magazine

CAFconnection.ca is a new Canadian Armed Forces website that brings the contents of the FamilyForce and CF Community Gateway websites under one URL. It connects CAF members and families to local Military Family Resource Centres (MFRCs) and personnel support programs under the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services through one single site. It improves and modernizes the way military members and their families access information and resources about local Canadian Armed Forces morale and welfare services.

Family members who used to go to CF Community Gateway to access local recreation schedules, mess hours and registration for programs, and then had to go to FamilyForce to find local MFRC programming can now go to a single destination. The site is easy to navigate, full of images of Canadian Armed Forces members and their families, with plenty of news and events. It uses a platform that lends itself to mobile technology, allowing for additional development of the site with new functionality and options. The site automatically adjusts to whatever size screen you are looking at, including smart phones, tablets, laptops and PCs.

The content is organized in two ways: by large audience groups, such as military personnel, veterans and families, parents and caregivers and families of the fallen; and by programming areas, such as deployment, child care, health care, housing and recreation.

CAFconnection.ca is now live and content is regularly added. Comments on the new site can be sent to cafconnection@gmail.com.
