About us

Why focus on the family?

Throughout history, family has been fundamental to society. Strong families lead to strong communities and contribute to a healthy, stable nation.

But because our families are made up of imperfect people, seeking to do right but often feeling like we’re getting it wrong, many families are just struggling to survive.

Knowing how to have a family that thrives is difficult. It takes effort. And it can be easy to take our families for granted. We assume they’ll always be there. We assume they’ll turn out fine. But this assumption can fracture families, leading to fractured communities and an unstable nation – a sad fact we witness in the brokenness of the world around us today.

But that’s why we’re here.

At Focus on the Family Canada, we know that when families are equipped with practical advice grounded in Biblical truths, they can thrive. When families are strong, they leave a valuable imprint on society for generations to come.

That’s why we’re committed to helping Canadians nurture, protect and invest in their families so they can thrive – even in the messy brokenness of our world.

“‘Why focus on the family?’ Because the solution to so many of our society’s problems can be found in a wholehearted investment in stable, healthy families.”

– Jim Daly

“The business done in the home is nothing less than the shaping of the bodies and souls of humanity. The family is the factory that manufactures mankind.”

– G.K. Chesterton

“This triangle of truisms, of father, mother and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.”

– G.K. Chesterton
