With Dad: Strengthening the Circle of Care

February 2011

How can we welcome fathers back into the circle of care in the post-residential school era in Canada? A national gathering hosted by the NCCAH in February 2011 included elders like George Giant, a residential school survivor, and program leaders like Jake Gearheard of the Ilisaqsivik Society helping address social and cultural change for Inuit men in the Arctic. This narrative report accompanies a documentary film that shares the insights of Elders, fathers, matriarchs and participants on strengthening the role for First Nations, Inuit and Métis fathers in communities, programs, research and policies in Canada.
