Farm Family Support Center

The Farm Family Support Centre is managed as a Member Assistance Program (MAP) through Morneau Shepell.

The MAP is a voluntary, confidential, short-term counselling and advisory service that connects farmers and their immediate family members to a network of dedicated professionals who are available to provide assistance 24 hours a day.

This program is available at no cost for up to 3 hours per case. If you require more specialized or longer-term support, your MAP will help you select an appropriate specialist or community service that can provide assistance.

The MAP provides support related to:

  • Mental health
  • Relationships
  • Finances
  • Legal
  • and much more
