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.
Local and national businesses can become official partners by offering an exclusive discount to the Canadian Armed Forces community. Your discount is displayed alongside your logo and details on the official CF Appreciation website and app, for all to see and discover.
The CF Appreciation program was recently handed down from CFMWS Ottawa Headquarters, to the local level. This change was made to ensure the needs of our partners are being met.
Since, we’ve implemented a few new features, including:
- CF Brand Ambassador
From regular check-ins, to updating your discount, our dedicated brand ambassadors will ensure your needs are being met. They’re your direct line of contact to the program and want to see you succeed!
- Base Wide Promotions
Marketing channels on base will be utilized to create awareness of the CF Appreciation program. From newspaper ads to the TV screens at the gym, we’re putting in the work to ensure the success of the program.
- Tiered Program
We understand that every business has different needs. We created a tiered program that offers additional ways to promote your discount to CAF members. See the table below for a list of available packages.
- Dedicated Base Page
Members can now easily browse through local discounts close to your home base, on one convenient page. To see a list of discounts available in your area visit cfappreciationborden.ca or cfappreciationtoronto.ca
