To mark the start of Quebec Fatherhood Week on June 9, 2019, Minister of Families Mathieu Lacombe shared a video with an important message: when dads are more involved in parenting, everyone benefits.
“I want you to know that you have an ally in the government working to help dads fully embrace their role as parents. Because when dads are more involved, everyone benefits. We’re already doing it, we’re already doing it much more than in previous decades, but I think we still have some work to. […] When we encourage dads to take on their share of responsibilities, when we give them tools to do that, it allows moms to participate more fully in the workforce and bear less of that mental load we hear so much about.”
