Canadian Centre for Men
and Families British Columbia
Welcome to the Canadian Centre for Men and Families British Columbia!
The Canadian Centre for Men and Families is the nation’s leader in the men’s advocacy and service-delivery space. We seek to promote a culture-wide shift in attitudes such that men are celebrated for the many contributions they make to their families, to their communities, and to Canadian society. We work to serve men navigating challenges with compassion. Our programmes, most of which are free of cost, foster men’s agency and give men a sense of belonging at critical turning points: when navigating separation and divorce, when facing legal proceedings in a system that often treats men unfairly, and when learning to move on with courage and dignity, making better futures for themselves and their families.
CCMF (BC) is the West Coast’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: women, children, communities and the culture at large.
Our programs are available to residents all across British Columbia.
