Serving all Military Families in New Brunswick

Welcome to the New Brunswick Military Family Resource Centre! We recognize that families come in all shapes and sizes. The New Brunswick Military Family Resource Centre (NBMFRC) is here to work with you and your family. Whether you just heard that you are coming to New Brunswick or are new to the area, or have lived here for a long time, you will enjoy the many programs, activities and special events available to you and your family.  A family is made up of individuals who support you, the serving member.  The NBMFRC recognizes that family units are extremely varied, including single members, couples without children, couples with children, parents of serving members, empty nesters, pet owners, and any variations of the above.  Please know that we provide services, support, information and referrals for ALL types of families.  We may have a licensed daycare onsite, but our building also houses supports and program areas for all ages and family dynamics.

Mission 

To support the well-being of Military Families by responding to their evolving needs and celebrating their strengths.

Vision 

Empowered and connected Military Families

Who We Are

The NBMFRC is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to enriching the quality of life for military families. A volunteer Board of Directors comprised of a minimum of 51% military spouses, Canadian Armed Forces members and Ex-Officio members govern our organization. The Centre's main source of funding is provided through a partnership with Military Family Services (MFS), and 5th Canadian Division Support Base Gagetown. Additional funding is realized through user fees, donations, fundraisers, federal and provincial grants and contributions from our community.

MFRCs are individual non-profits and though we all share 4 mandated service delivery components, we function independently from one another. This allows us to cater specifically to the needs of our families residing in New Brunswick, and form collaborative partnerships with local service providers to enhance the programs and services we are able to offer.  This means that although you may receive certain programs and services from us, the official job titles and community needs in other service areas may call upon their MFRCs to do things a little differently. Ultimately, we are grateful for the individuality this independence allows us, as we are able to listen to the suggestions from our members and their families, and tailor our approaches to suit their unique needs.

Military History Museum

New Brunswick Military History Museum

Mission

The mission of the New Brunswick Military History Museum is to acquire, conserve, research, exhibit, and interpret artefacts and archival documents that illustrate the history and heritage of the military forces in New Brunswick, and New Brunswickers at war, during peacetime, and on UN/NATO duty to Canadian Armed Forces personnel and to the public at large.

About Us

The New Brunswick Military History Museum showcases the rich military history of New Brunswick dating from the mid-17th century to the present day. Visitors can step back in time and explore this heritage through interactive and life-sized exhibits. Join us and discover our military’s stories of triumph and sacrifice. 

Services/Offerings:

  • guided tours
  • educational programs
  • reference library
  • historical research
  • Wolastoq Conference Room
  • Patronage Wall commemoration plaques

Accessible to military personnel as well as members of the public. Hours vary seasonally. 

Donations

In order to tell our story, we rely on donations of uniforms, weapons, medals, books, photographs and other artifacts. Items from the 1700s to present day are required from all elements; Army, Navy and Airforce. Provenance – known history of the item such as owner or use – helps us fit the item into the story line and greatly increases its value both to the museum and to Canadian military history.

Although we receive partial funding as a military museum, funds required for routine operations must be generated from local resources. This includes grants and donations from interested organizations and individuals. Donations may be used for a variety of purposes including hiring staff and helping to pay for a new facility. Tax receipts will be issued for any amount over $10.00.

Your support is greatly appreciated.
