The 2018 campaign of the Quebec Fatherhood Week will be held under the theme Fathers: Fully Engaged Parents so as to recognize the role of Quebec fathers and to emphasize that they are truly… full-fledged parents!
Fathers of young children, most of whom are millennials, are more present for their children than were their own fathers and share more in domestic tasks with their partner. The young fathers of today change diapers, feed their children, see to their education and attend to their upbringing. As fully engaged parents, they should benefit from public policies and family services that adapt to this new reality.
As part of the 2018 campaign, the Regroupement pour la Valorisation de la Paternité proposes 5 series of measures to reform Quebec public policies with the aim of fully recognizing the involvement of fathers while respecting better equality between women and men.
The complete Proposal Paper will be translated in the coming weeks. In the meanwhile, you can consult a summary of these issues and measures in a format adapted to social media.
This guide was prepared for organizations that wish to hold a discussion on the theme “Fathers: Fully Engaged Parents” during the 2018 Quebec Fatherhood Week. The discussion can include both fathers and future fathers.
