Program Description

Are you a man who has experienced abuse or violence in an intimate relationship? Do you feel manipulated, diminished or traumatized?

We can help. The Canadian Centre for Men and Families offers a support group dedicated to men and open to all male identified people who have experienced intimate partner abuse, violence, or trauma. All programs are free. Join us for positive, affirming, and confidential support.

We understand men who have been in abusive relationships need a safe and compassionate environment to begin the process of healing. Our highest priority is ensuring the group environment is safe, non-judgmental and compassionate for all men, and male identified people, regardless of sexual orientation, identification, religion, race, colour, background, or experience.

The goals of the group are:

  • To provide group members with support from others who are going through or have gone through categorically similar experiences.
  • To acquire the skills, coping mechanisms, and resources to get you through this difficult time.
  • To begin the recovery process, to heal, and regain control in your life – become empowered.
  • To provide a safe and confidential space where you can be heard in a compassionate, empathetic, and non-judgmental environment.
  • To meet with others who understand your experiences because they have traveled down the same path.
  • To provide connection to others who may have felt isolated and alone.

If you feel diminished in any of your intimate/family relationships, think you might have been in an abusive situation, or have experienced violence, let’s talk.

The program will be hosted via Zoom. We are requiring all participants to appear with both video and audio in order to simulate, as closely as possible, an actual group meeting.
