Drop in Father's Group at West Neighbourhood House
West Neighbourhood House has a weekly Father's drop in on Saturdays. I'm planning to attend with my 5yo and 2yo. This will be a great opportunity to check out their space as well as meet other dads. They hold these drop ins every Saturday, feel free to go! This meetup is just for a week that I will be attending as an official Toronto Dads Group meetup. - Free drop-in program inclusive to all fathers including grandfathers and their pre-school children 0-6 - a great way to spend a Saturday morning enjoying building projects, crafts, sports, sing-a-long and story time together in a play-based environment - A chance to connect with other fathers and discuss successes and challenges - Program led by trained early childhood educators.

    What we're about

    Toronto Dads Group is a diverse community of fathers who take an active role in our children’s lives. We host meet-ups several times per month, with our kids at parks, playgrounds, museums, sporting events, parent-and-me classes, and anywhere else we feel compelled within the Toronto metro area. We also host Dads Nights Out to give our members an opportunity to network, socialize, have fun, learn, and support each other as we navigate parenthood. This group is just for every dad who has walked into a playdate/drop in center and felt like a bit out of place.

    We are a group with dads of all stripes: married dads, single dads, gay dads, trans dads, dads who share custody, adoptive dads, step dads, stay at home dads, full time working dads, work from home dads, freelance dads, etc. Our meet-ups occur both during the week and on weekends to accommodate both stay at home dads and working dads. We welcome all involved fathers in and around the Toronto area who want to socialize and interact with other guys who enjoy spending quality time with their children. The only requirement to joining us is to be a dad. There are no group dues and no attendance expectations although we hope you're considerate and change your rsvp if you can't attend the meetup. We have some dads who come consistently to most of what we do, and we have some dads who might only come out once or twice per year. We’re here for all dads whenever they are ready to participate.

    About your lead organizer: My name is Amar. I am a stay at home dad who recently moved to Toronto from New York. I've got a 1 year old and 4 year old who are looking to make friends!

    Toronto Dads Group is part of the City Dads Group, a dynamic and diverse community of fathers dedicated to being active in their children’s lives and, by example, redefining what it means to be a dad in the 21st century. City Dads Group has active groups in many major metropolitan areas throughout the United States. Find them all here at

    ** Please note that group membership is strictly for Dads. We often host events where the dads can bring their families. We want this group to be a comfortable place for Dads to learn, connect, and talk about anything parent related.
