Family support

Canadian Critical Incident Stress Foundation (CCISF)

A national charitable organization, the CCISF assists emergency personnel and communities involved in or exposed to critical incidents by providing a network of teams, trainers and resources that enable and enhance crisis response.

The CCISF provides support services and resources to the families of the first responders. To view these resources, visit the CCISF website.


OSI-CAN provides peer groups that aid in the recovery and resiliency of the family as a whole. At times, adult family and friends of those affected by operational stress injuries (OSI) and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may be seeking or require connections and resources of their own.
