What is the program?

The CF Appreciation Program was created to offer a variety of discounts to Canadian military personnel and their families in recognition of their sacrifices and dedication. The program expanded to include some of the world’s brands and major businesses, and is being enhanced and expanded into new markets.

The CF Appreciation Program aims to incorporate new business categories and more attractive incentives within the existing program to meet the ever evolving needs of our Canadian Forces community. Particularly in the areas of family attractions, leisure travel, entertainment and accommodations.

How does it work?
The program offers rate reductions and incentives that are exclusive to members of the Canadian Forces through the CF Appreciation Program website. To ensure the success of the program, meaningful and attractive offers will drive the purchasing power of the Canadian military community to your business.
The Canadian Forces Appreciation Program is administered by the Personnel and Family Support Services organization of the Canadian Forces, an internal organization that exists solely for the benefit of current and former members and their families. Thanks to the nature of this organization, no commissions or mark-ups are applied to provide discounts. By signing an agreement that outlines the nature of the offer put forward by your business to the Canadian Forces community, 100% of the incentive reaches its target audience.  Making changes to the offer is easy and withdrawal from the program may be accomplished at any time.
