Single Parenting

At FamilyLife Canada, our mission is to bring help and hope to all the marriages and families in Canada. That includes families with single parents.

Parenting is tough enough when there are two parents sharing the load, but we’ve seen the toll it takes on single parents when most or all of the parenting falls only on their shoulders.
So we’ve enlisted the help of two professionals for this video on demand mini series dedicated to helping single parents. You will gain wisdom from two of our favourite parenting educators: Joel Pukalo and Jenn Dean.

Northview Cares Initiative

Now more than ever, the call for the Church to love others is important. We want to serve and meet the needs of those who may be experiencing unforeseen hardship due to COVID-19.

At Northview we believe that every need is an opportunity to “shine our light before others, so that they may see our good works and give glory to our Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16). Our hope is built on the perfect love of Jesus Christ, who calls us to share His love by our actions.
