Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.

Family Education and Support Centre or “Family Ed” as we are often called, is a multi-service agency that has grown and changed over the years in response to our communities’ need for services. Back in 1971 a group of parents met around a kitchen table in one of their homes, to plan and dream of a Centre where families and community members could come to learn and be supported. It was through the imagination and determination of these few community members that our Centre was given life.

Not only has Family Ed expanded to provide programming requested by our community and our funders, we have also provided leadership in working with our local Community Network, Early Childhood Development and Middle Childhood Matters Committees, and the development of a local Community HUB called The Hive, etc.

Whether you are looking for information about parenting,  parent and child programming, mental health services, personal growth, multiculturalism, diversity education, food security or community kitchens, we have much to offer you and/or your family. We also offer employment, volunteering and donation opportunities. So please, take a look around and if you cannot find what you are looking for, give us a call, we would love to hear from you.

Thank you,
