Our centre in Toronto, which has been open for three years, has had great success providing therapy and counselling, peer support, a legal clinic, fathering programs, mentorship and support services for male victims of trauma and violence. They provide services, research, advocacy, outreach and public education on all aspects of men's issues and focus on the health and well-being of boys, men, fathers and families. However, we are only beginning to develop programs here in Ottawa.
