The Regroupement pour la Valorisation de la Paternité (RVP), in collaboration with the members of the Comité de travail national sur les pères et la périnatalité, is pleased to lead the 2023 campaign of the Semaine Québécoise de la Paternité, which will take place this year under the theme “Be a team right from the start.” The theme emphasizes the importance of parental couples being fully involved, from the moment a child is conceived in order to form a loving, supportive, committed co-parental team to promote their child’s well-being, as well as to promote more egalitarian parenthood between Quebec mothers and fathers.

The 2023 campaign will consist of two important elements: 1) a statement of principles and 2) a strategic platform containing all the elements to be put in place to ensure that fatherhood and co-parenthood are fully integrated into the service offerings and public policies concerning the perinatal period. These two elements will be the focus of this year’s campaign, which will take place in the media and on social networks.

The Comité de travail national sur les pères et la périnatalité is composed of the following members: the Centre d’études interdisciplinaires sur le développement de l’enfant et de la famille, the Collectif petite enfance, CooPÈRE, the Fédération québécoise des organismes communautaires Famille, Fondation Olo, the Lucie and André Chagnon Foundation (including Na et Grandir and the Observatoire des tout-petits), the Regroupement pour la Valorisation de la Paternité, and the Réseau des Centres de ressources périnatales du Québec.
