We’re here for Canadian families.
We're Families Canada.

Families Canada is formerly known as the Canadian Association of Family Resource Programs (FRP Canada).

Every child deserves the right start in life, but the fact of the matter is, not everyone gets the start they deserve. That is why we champion the programs and policies that build the strength of Canada’s families.

At Families Canada, we deliver the education, training and tools that empower our network of organizations to reach families from all backgrounds – building stronger families and stronger communities.

Together for Families Conference

The biennial Together for Families Conference is a unique event that connects various stakeholders from across the U.S. and Canada in the Family Support and Strengthening Field to focus on quality practice.  This conference, co-hosted by key national organizations in the field, weaves together content related to the field of Family Support, the Strengthening Families Approach, Advancing Equity, and the Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening & Support.  It is designed for practitioners at the program, systems, and funder levels.  It will provide valuable opportunities for learning from expert presentations, innovation sharing, peer learning, and networking.

From knowledge to know-how.

We know what Canadian families need to thrive because we’ve been doing this for over 40 years. We provide hundreds of family support organizations – and thousands of frontline workers – with the latest science and thinking they need to best respond to the families they serve.

From practice to policy.

We work with governments and companies to implement smart, family-friendly policies that enable Canada’s families to live strong and productive lives. It’s this ongoing work that continuously inspires top policy-makers, change-makers and family advocates to call upon us for our expertise and advice.
