Respite at the MFRC to "Take Some Time for Yourself"

Please be aware that the MFRC offers free periods of respite, within the framework of their "Give It a Rest Program", to families who are experiencing deployment, temporary duty (military loved one at an exercise abroad or a course) or even military families who have to face more difficult moments in their daily lives.

Our periods of respite have thus been established to give you a moment to relax and rejuvenate to decrease the stress and fatigue that military lifestyle may cause. 

The service is offered:
  • For preschool-aged children: Monday to Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (according to our Respite Daycare availability) ;

  • ​Every other Saturday from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. for preschool- and school-aged children.

Please note, however, that the offer is flexible and it may be adapted according to demand and families’ needs.

Reservations are mandatory.

To get your coupons that give you a right to respite periods, please contact the coordinator of the Bagotville MFRC’s Child, Youth & Family Sector by dialing 418 677-7468.
