Who is CCMF?

The Canadian Centre for Men and Families is a mental health and social service hub delivering programs and services for boys, men, fathers and their families. Our vision focuses on three critical areas:
1. Reduce suicide among men at high-risk through intervention programs that confront the barriers that men face.
2. Empower fathers undergoing separation and divorce through legal clinics and fathering groups that strengthen the father-child relationship, while working to promote positive social attitudes toward fatherhood
3. Support men who are experiencing domestic abuse and work with other agencies to improve services for boys and men.
In addition to delivering front-line programs and services to families in crisis, we undertake evidence-based research, host public education and awareness activities, and work to improve public policies to better support all Canadians.

Canada Child Benefit

Did you know a low income single father can only access child benefits with approval from a female partner? The Government of Canada presumes, in the very article of the law, that fathers are secondary parents. Let's end gender discrimination in the Income Tax Act. 

Look Behind the Mask

75% of suicides are Men. 100% of suicides are preventable. Even in the best of times, men often suffer from a lack of strong social networks. During a pandemic, social isolation can be a killer for men. Learn the warning signs and how to intervene effectively.

Legal Fund

In our first intervention before the Supreme Court of Canada, our legal team argued before the highest court that false and damaging beliefs about male sexual insatiability should be seen as the male equivalents to the established rape myths.

Healthy Fathers. Healthy Families

Both scholarly research and the lived experiences of our clients agree. Healthy and involved fathers make for healthy and strong children and families. Join us for a week of exciting events every third week in June!
