Father’s Day on the Hill is an annual event that brings together Members of Parliament from all parties, key mental health stakeholders and policy makers to discuss mental health with a focus on men and fathers. 

 

This initiative was started 3 years ago as a non-partisan initiative led by Matt Jeneroux with help from Members of Parliament Majid Jowhari and Gord Johns and in partnership with Movember and the Mental Health Commission of Canada. In past years, our event has featured prominent Canadian men including Peter Mansbridge, Bryan Baeumler, Georges Laraque among others.

#HiDad

This year's campaign is about checking in with your father or other prominent man in your life and letting them know how much they mean to you. Starting the conversation about men’s mental health can be hard - #HiDad hopes to empower all of us to connect with the men in our life and let them know it’s okay not to be okay.
