The Involved Father and Gender Equity project was a collaborative effort between the White Ribbon Campaign and Dad Central. The study explored the positive roles that fathers, organizations working with diverse fathers, and the fatherhood sector in Ontario in general can play in promoting gender equality, healthy, equal relationships, and ending violence against women in all its forms.

The project also sought to understand how organizations, communities, and those working in the fatherhood sector in Ontario might better understand father involvement as a method for promoting gender equality.

The findings outlined in the report are the compilation of focus groups conducted with fathers across Canada making it a must-read for any organization seeking to design programs that will effectively engage fathers. Data reported includes information collected through focus groups, surveys of fathers who participated in the focus groups, interviews with stakeholders and professionals working on engaging fathers, and a preliminary environmental scan of services available to fathers in Ontario.
