Each fall, during the first week of October, Canadians in communities across the country come together for local celebrations during National Family Week. The week provides an opportunity to celebrate families and reflect on their importance in our lives.
The campaign, proclaimed an official week by the Government of Canada in 1985, was initiated and coordinated for over 20 years by Family Service Canada.
Since 2007, the Canadian Association of Family Resource Programs has assumed the coordination role and, together with other National Family Week partners, offers resources relating to an annual theme including ideas for fun activities that families can do together.
