The Tantramar Family Resource Centre will work towards developing the Tantramar community as a safe, secure, and healthy community where all citizens have access to social services, where their basic needs are met, and where a reasonable quality of life is assured. We're always working hard to build on our community relationships, and welcome input and suggestions for the future. 


  • Equal Access
  • Family involvement
  • Inclusion
  • Enhance education, literacy, and social development
  • Support nutrition, wellness, and healthy living 
  • Evolve community-based programs through partnerships and networking 


The Tantramar Family Resource Centre grew out of Quality of Life meetings held in Sackville, New Brunswick in 2000. By 2005, a steering committee was formed, and by 2007, the TFRC became an incorporated entity with charitable status. 

For the last 12 years, volunteers have driven the success of the Tantramar Family Resource Centre; a volunteer board of directors meets on a monthly basis to make decisions on funding applications, programming requests and fundraising ideas.
