Side by Side: Strategies for Working with Vulnerable Fathers
The 2nd Canadian National Fatherhood Conference is for anyone interested in engaging fathers in their community with services, programs, or resources. The conference goal is to help you provide fathers with the knowledge and support needed around the healthy development of children.
The 2nd Canadian National Fatherhood Conference will call together workers, clinicians,
practitioners, managers, and researchers from across Canada to present and share their work with fathers. In particular, this year’s focus will encourage discussions about fathers at risk:
- Young Dads
- Racialized Dads
- Dads involved with child welfare
- Aboriginal Dads
- Incarcerated Dads
- Immigrant/newcomer Dads
It will connect people by creating much-needed networking around engaging fathers-at-risk in programs and communities. It will inform people by focusing on practical and researched-based father involvement information. It will mobilize people through ideas and the momentum of conversations about fatherhood.
