With three sites to serve you in Halifax, Shearwater and Sydney, Cape Breton, we have many programs and services for the entire family. From our fun and funky Youth Centre located at 12 Wing Shearwater, to our state of the art daycare facilities, you’ll find something for everyone in the family at the MFRC. Our Cape Breton location and outreach services offer programs and information for families residing throughout Northern and Central Nova Scotia. Aside from all of the great programs and services, we are also fortunate to offer assistance to your family 24 hours a day/7 days per week through our Family Information Referral Services Team (FIRST). Call 427-7788 or 1-888-753-8827 (toll free) to access this service.
Make sure your family drops in to one of our sites for a tour and to discover the many programs and services we offer. Sign up for our mailing list and eNews to stay connected to events and activities we have coming up. We host a couple of special events designed specifically for newcomers throughout the year – stay tuned and check out these great events.
