Mission

Established in 2017, the Canadian Centre for Men and Families (CCMF) is Ottawa’s first hub for the health and well-being of boys, men, fathers and families. The Centre 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.  We provide services, research, advocacy, outreach and public education on all aspects of men’s issues.

 

Values

We value equality, tolerance, respect, dignity and acceptance.

We value all fundamental freedoms, including freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of thought, freedom of association and freedom of the press. We believe in the importance of discussing different perspectives and we oppose censorship of controversial or politically incorrect ideas.

We value peaceful and non-violent approaches to settling differences.

We value the human rights of each and every individual. We believe the advancement of human rights is not a zero sum game where some will win only if others lose. We believe every human wins when any individual succeeds in advancing their human rights.

We value people above ideas; we strive to ensure beneficial outcomes for our clients, personnel and our community.

We value education; as an educational charity, we are committed to the highest standards of education and strive to continually improve educational content and experience.

We value public policy that flows from fact-led and evidence-based scientific research rather than political or ideological commitment or special interest agenda.

We value the wellness of people; we strive to improve the wellness of our personnel, our community and the public.

We value excellence; at all times, we undertake to continually improve our business based on feedback, input and participation of our community, personnel and the public.

We value transparency; at all times, we undertake to demonstrate transparency to our personnel, members and the public.

We are an open and diverse community of individuals that embraces individuals regardless of sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race, religion, age, martial status or national origin.
