2nd Canadian National Fatherhood Conference

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.

Over 100 years since some women got the vote in Manitoba, homelessness unfortunately is a reality for women in our community. This research brings a gender-based analsysis to the homelessness crisis to better understand women's experiences and what women identify is needed. Researchers conducted interviews with 30 women who’ve experienced homelessness in Winnipeg and 10 key informants working in this area. The information was analyzed and the report includes recommendations for action. The report is peer reviewed.

Advising the report are leaders from Ma Mawi, North End Women’s Centre, North Point Douglas Women’s Centre, West Central Women’s Centre, End Homelessness Inc and the Social Planning Council of Winnipeg. 

Thank you to the funders: the Province of Manitoba through NA!, United Way Winnipeg, End Homelessness Inc, Assiniboine Credit Union and the Manitoba Research Alliance.
