Business Continuity Amid COVID-19

In this time of COVID-19 uncertainty, we are each concerned about family, friends and neighbours, but those of us responsible for businesses have added responsibilities. Not-for-profits, just like for profits, have business continuity issues that need to be managed.

Our Story

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.

Our Story
Knowledge and Knowhow

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.
