Families Matter Research Group Interactive Series: Introducing Garnet Families – Seeing yourself within the Garnet Families Community

Wednesday, June 12, 2024
11:00 am CST  |  1:00 pm EDT

Garnet Families come from all walks of life and are dedicated to keeping our country and communities safe and secure. We recognize that in these families when one member of the family serves, the whole family serves.

Through a panel discussion, we will introduce who Garnet Families are and the collective impact network designed to address the needs and gaps identified by families and those who serve and support them.

While this is an open event and all are welcome, please note, registration is required. Information gathered from this event will play a vital role in growing the Garnet Families Network that will serve and support Garnet Families across Canada. Following the event, attendees will be asked to complete a survey to inform the format, frequency, and themes of future Garnet Families Network activities.

We would like to acknowledge the support of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Partnership Development Grant (Families matter: A partnership of partners to study, serve, and support the families of military, veterans, and public safety personnel) with partners the Canadian Institute for Public Safety Research and Treatment (CIPSRT), the Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research (CIMVHR), and the Vanier Institute of the Family, along with Medavie Foundation.
