COVID-19 Squadron Support Network

A few members wanted to establish a COVID-19 Squadron Support Network with the aim of assisting members and their families who may be self-isolating in accordance with the Chief of Defence Staff’s direction and public health authority orders.

  • Supporters are members who are healthy and able to pick up essential items for members in isolation. If you would like to help out by assisting fellow members, please fill out the Google form.
  • Supporters will be identified by area and their information will be made available in the private Facebook group dedicated to COVID-19 support for our members. Moreover, supporters’ contact information will be provided to MFRC so that the organization can assist if they receive any requests on their end of similar nature.
  • Those in need of support are encouraged to join the Facebook group ‘COVID-19 Squadron Support Network to easily connect with supporters in their area.
  • If you are not on Facebook and would like to request a supporter to do essential errands for you, you can contact Sandra Pinard at the MFRC for a supporter in your area.

Please note that this support network is meant only for current 443 members and their families. This includes those who may be deployed or on course with their families residing in the Greater Victoria & Cowichan area. Please be advised that it is at the supporter’s discretion to assist others who are not included in the network so long as they follow the directed social distancing measures. Our members’ health and safety are of utmost importance to us all so the more supporters available, the better; more supporters will lessen trips and possible exposure greatly.
