The 7th edition of Quebec Fatherhood Week was celebrated June 10 to 16, 2019, with nearly 100 Proud to Be a Dad activities and events across Quebec. The social media campaign was record-breaking, driven by scores of dads and influencers who posted selfies with their children to show their pride in being a dad.
For some time now, we’ve noticed that fathers, especially the younger ones, have a stronger desire than ever to fully engage in their parenting experience, but because of still-dominant social roles, they feel little encouragement to say it loud and clear.
The #ProudToBeADad Challenge is looking to change that by turning the spotlight on dads and associating them with a very positive message of hope that speaks directly to the strongest feeling dads have about fatherhood—pride.
