About CCMF Alberta

The Canadian Centre for Men and Families (CCMF) Alberta provides a safe and welcoming space for men while they navigate relationship distress. Our aim is to help equip men so they can be more involved as fathers, better partners, safer workers, and more engaged contributing members of their communities.

CCMF Alberta rejects discrimination of any kind, and we focus on filling the gap in services for men’s mental health. We recognize that men and women often require different forms of emotional support that a blanket approach may not take into account. Our clients are mostly adult men who have experienced distressing events and/or trauma causing them to suffer emotionally and financially. They need a safe place to belong and have meaningful conversations so that they can create a better future for themselves and their families.

We meet our clients where they are at and support them with compassion. We are dedicated to improving our clients’ agency (the feeling of control over actions and consequences) by offering tools and resources. Improved mental health leads to reduced suicide, optimal parenting outcomes, and reduced family violence.
