Healthy Boys, Men, Families, Communities.

The Canadian Centre for Men and Families is Canada’s hub for boys, men, fathers and families. We work for a healthy future for men, boys, and their families, by filling critical gaps in men’s services that reduce male suicide, empower fathers undergoing separation and divorce, and help men heal from trauma. We support, empower and advocate for men before, during and after a crisis, in an empowered, courageous, open, inclusive and supportive environment. We believe that when men are supported to live their best lives, everybody benefits.


Established in 2014, the Canadian Centre for Men and Families (CCMF) is an open, inclusive and safe space, providing therapy and counselling, peer support, a legal clinic, fathering programs, mentorship and support services for male victims of trauma and violence. 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.
