Moving to a new community can be stressful, but we're here to help. The MFRC connects families with the information they need to get settled. Starting with the distribution of our Welcome Package before or upon arrival to CFB Trenton and then support continues as needed. It could be information on education resources, activities and/or services on the base or in the surrounding communities. If you have a question, we will find an answer or the person who should be able to answer it.
