Welcome to www.mydad.ca . This site has been created as part
of “My Daddy Matters Because…”, also known as the National
Project Fund on Fathering that is funded by Health Canada's
National Project Fund. The primary purpose of this site is
to provide information for people who are developing and managing
Father programs in their communities.
You will find a searchable user-friendly national index
of father activities, services, resources, and programs: this
Index contains information about activities, services, resources,
and programs that exist for fathers coast-to-coast. The organization
of the User Index allows the user to search for information
either by geographic location of the activities, services,
resources, and programs or by the type of father that is served.
There is also a Adobe Acrobat version of this database for
here to get Adobe Acrobat reader)
You will also find the project’s 'Father Toolkit'
that contains much of the current research and practical information
you will need to either become more father-friendly or to
develop activities, services, resources, and programs for
fathers in your project or agency.
You may be interested in taking a look at the Social Marketing
Tools, including posters, radio and television spots. These
are available on the site too.
Finally, this site contains Links to Resources for Dads:
