The Cross Cultural Parenting Program provides parents and caregivers with practical knowledge and skills for parenting in Canada. Throughout the program we explore parent-child relationships, best practices, methods and techniques, and tools for parenting in a multicultural society. Our trained facilitators work closely with you, answering your questions, and providing tips and important information while the group offers a supportive setting to share and discuss with other parents.

The program runs on Tuesdays from 6-8pm at the Multicultural Association (Bob Lamb Building, 8015 Franklin Avenue, Second Floor, Room 246).

Cost: $25.
To encourage attendance, students who attend at least 80% of classes will be FULLY REFUNDED!
