CFOne Card Benefits

© 2017 FrontLine Defence (Vol 14, No 1)

You once wore a Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) uniform and served your country proudly. Now, as a former member, you may not feel as connected to the CAF Community but over the last two decades, numerous programs have been created that never existed before, and you can access them through the CFOne Card.

Whether you served for one year or thirty (or longer), you need to know that you and your family continue to be a big part of the one million strong CAF Community. As members of that Community, you and your family are entitled to access a variety of unique programs and services aimed at maintaining, and improving your morale and welfare – from enrollment through to retirement. Serving individuals, families and the CAF Community as a whole, Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services (CFMWS) offers a broad variety of such benefits accessible via the CFOne Card.

“It’s about making sure our community members are connected and use the CFOne Card. We want them to access CFMWS programs and services, and to take advantage of all the great benefits this membership has to offer,” says Commodore Sean Cantelon, Director General Morale and Welfare Services.

CFMWS has a simple way to access information about morale and welfare programs at www.cfmws.com/YourServices. This user-friendly online resource provides a detailed catalogue of all programs offered by CFMWS to you and the entire military community. Getting connected allows you the opportunity to identify what programs and services are needed, and provides the dedicated staff at CFMWS with insights into trends and where they need to provide further support.

CFOne membership also opens the door to the offerings of many wonderful partners that are helping to bring significant and tangible benefits such as discounts and savings to the CAF Community through the CF Appreciation Program.

In addition, the CFOne Card provides members with access to online shopping 24/7 at CANEX, Canada’s Military Store, where CANEX Reward Points can be ­collected with every purchase. Visit CANEX.ca to see members-only pricing and to access the exclusive No Interest Credit Plan.

“My wife and I used our CFOne cards several times throughout our first family trip travelling from Ontario to Alberta and then to British Columbia. Not only did it save us money for a family of four with two young children, it allowed us to have a more memorable and fantastic trip with lots of opportunities,” confirms Steve McGhee from his home in Markham, Ontario.

Veterans and their families can take advantage of travel benefits through CF Getaways, or apply for a complimentary vacation through the Vacations for Vets Program. Getting connected to CFMWS through the CFOne card also offers Veterans an opportunity to participate in contests and free give-a-ways.

Using their individual CFOne card number, Veterans and their families can access DFit for Veterans and Families, a new online resource featuring general fitness and a more family-friendly, total lifestyle approach to active living. Once downloaded, members can access special features focused on active living, online personal training, nutrition planning and much more.

If you and/or your family members do not have your CFOne card yet, don’t wait, get yours today at www.cf1fc.com.
