Unfortunately, the volume of e-mail and phone calls has increased to the point where it is no longer sustainable. Therefore, we have limited general and support communications to paid members. Once you have become a paid member, you will be given access to a private message forum for support and communication.
Members also receive legal and procedural information regarding the child welfare and court process. We are not lawyers so we can not give legal advice, however we can walk you through the process, lead you to the proper forms to use, help you understand what to expect and how to respond if necessary to child welfare officials and/or court procedures.
Media / Government / Related Professionals/etc.
Please leave a (voice or text) message at (613) 709-3866 (Ottawa) with a return number and description of why you called and we will return your call as soon as possible. (Usually immediately, sometimes the next day).
Regular Mail / Membership Applications / Donations / etc.
If you wish to send us mail, membership applications, donations or anything else, please do so using the following mailing address.
Please Note: We do not have a physical office, therefore the following mailing address is for mail or couriered packages only. No visits are possible.

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) does not deem lobbying the government for legislative changes a 'Charitable Purpose'.
Because of this Federally imposed limitation, we have chosen NOT to become a registered charity in order to continue advocating for much needed legislative changes.
Consequently, we can not issue tax-receipts for donations.
