At Families Canada, we have completed dozens and dozens of funded projects, if not a hundred, over the last 40+ years. Some initiatives are fairly new (intergenerational volunteering) and some we have been working on for a really long time (parenting). Below are our major areas of expertise.
Families Canada helps ensure financial literacy programs meet the needs of at-risk women, promotes education savings, and participates in national financial literacy events. Learn more about our work in this area.
Pairing seniors with youth and children creates positive outcomes for both groups. Learn more about how we bring people of all ages together in family support centres.
Children’s rights are central to our commitment to building strong families and championing the priorities, policies and programs that help strengthen families. Learn about how we help family support practitioners promote and uphold children’s rights in their everyday work.
While excellent resources are available to Canadians regarding food safety, many of these resources are inaccessible to new immigrant parents who may not have the required language or literacy skills to understand them. Learn about how we’re addressing this gap.
Social Inclusion of Newcomers
Family support centres are often among the first points of contact for new Canadians. Families Canada produces resources and pilots programming that help newcomers settle in Canada. Learn more about our work.
Trauma and Violence-Informed Approaches
Trauma and violence–informed approaches are critical for recognizing and responding to individuals who are affected by trauma and violence. Learn more about how we help family support centres adopt trauma and violence informed approaches.
