Dads Directory

We are always looking for programs, activities, and services available for dads to add to our directory.  These don’t need to be for “dads only”, but can be anything a parenting guy may be interested in.

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 info@dadcentral.ca or visit our website – dadcentral.ca.
