Are you a CAF family posted to a US location this summer where there is no onsite military family

We will talk about the programs and services that are provided to you throughout the year, and we will get you connected virtually with resources, information and other CAF families in the US

Healthy Living
How Do You Stay Healthy?

The OutCan Physical Fitness Program provides fitness, sports and health services to CAF personnel and their families posted outside of Canada. The Program is funded by Personnel Support Programs (PSP), a division of Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services (CFMWS). Services include CAF-specific programs such as annual physical fitness evaluations, physical fitness programs and fitness qualification training courses.

The Program also supports military spouses by offering services both in-person when PSP Fitness and Health Promotion staff travel to the various locations in the USA and Europe as well as remotely via email, webinars, websites, newsletters and phone.

Some examples of the services available to spouses include one-on-one consultations, fitness clinics, fitness training programs, weight room familiarization sessions and presentations on fitness training, healthy eating, fat loss, stress management and injury prevention.

Virtual Programming

Military Family Services uses virtual programs to bring quality, interactive and informative workshops, meetings and recordings to all CAF families, regardless of their posted location.
We do this using an on-line program called WebEx. We utilize this medium because our families are spread out across Canada and the U.S. The virtual classroom allows us to connect and engage with each other from our homes and offices.
