The Directive: Sept 19, 2017

The Directive is what Dad Central uses to stay in touch with you.  This is where we post interesting news, ideas, resources, and some fun stuff about fatherhood.  It is a mix of info for dads and info for those working to support fatherhood.  Enjoy!


Daddy and Me: On the Move (en/fr)

Here is a great resource for dads focused on things they can do with their kids (0-6) and how the bond is so important.  English  French

Hope and Help for Dads Behind Bars

We look forward to being part of a project with the Canadian Families and Corrections Network to bring support and resources to fathers in prisons across Canada.  With funding from Movember (which is really appreciated) the CFCN has potential to make a huge impact.  Be watching for more details as they come available.

Dad Directory

The Dad Directory is filling up, but there is always room for more.  Do you have a program or service you would like to add to the directory?  You can check it out here.

Dad Central Toronto

There are a few Dad Central networks popping up across the province (Ottawa, Windsor, Niagara, to name a few).  A new one will be meeting for the first time in Toronto on Oct 25.  If you are in Toronto and are interested in meeting to discuss fatherhood in the city, check out the details here.

Book of the Month

Hey Dads, there are tonnes of great books out there to read with our kids.  Here are a couple of suggestions: Where Did Daddy’s Hair Go (ages 4-7) and The Book Thief (ages 8-10).  Reading with your kids does a tonne of good for them, you, and your relationship.  Read something with your kids today!


Dad Central Ontario exists to support the invaluable role of fatherhood in the healthy development of children.  If you want more info about who we are and what we do, contact us at or visit our website –
