Being a father in Quebec


The project aims to sensitize and accompany immigrant families in their cultural integration in their new host society. Particular importance is put on understanding internal conflicts that might arise when juggling with the norms of two cultures, one of which they might not fully know or understand yet.

 The aim is that of providing a climate of understanding and acceptance in order to better aid fathers develop strategies for adapting to Quebec cultural codes while preserving their native culture. An emphasis is put on male identity and the role of men in the home.

The activities organized within the project will allow immigrant fathers to better understand the values of the Quebec family (gender equality, individual autonomy, etc.) and to strengthen their capacity to act, promoting positive paternal roles within their families without giving up their cultural identity.
