Join us Nov. 17 for the Canadian Centre for Men and Families - Ottawa Gala Dinner

Tickets are available via Eventbrite here.

The CCMF-O is an inclusive, safe place in Ottawa-Gatineau where men and boys can go when they need help, including therapy and counseling, peer support, a legal clinic, fathering programs, mentorship and support services for male victims of trauma and violence.

This year’s Gala will feature Joe Enberg’s tale of hardship and recovery, as well as updates on the Centre’s work, a fine buffet and the Capital City Chorus Barbershop Quartet, as well as a silent and live auction to assist in funding the Centre for the coming year.

If you want to know why our work is important, watch this testimonial video from men who’ve benefited from having a safe place to turn to when they need one.

Wish I'd said that - September 8, 2019

“Wherever you see a culture in decline, that’s lost its vision or sense of the meaning of life, its people always turn to sexuality in the search for meaning. Sexual pleasures are always intense, and when they get caught up in the search for meaning - when they become a substitute for real meaning, they become compulsive and addictive.”

Psychiatrist Jeffrey Satinover, quoted in British Columbia Report December 30, 1996
