Welcome to Families First!

What is a Family Resource Centre?

Family resource centres are accessible, welcoming, fun places for families to get together and take part in a variety of activities. Families First, previously known as Carousel, began in 1994 to help promote the emotional, physical, intellectual and social well-being of children aged 0-6 and their families. This is done by offering a variety of programs and services, such as parent-child play groups, field trips, special events, clothing exchanges and cooking groups. At Families First, parents can find information, support, friendships and opportunities to help one another with the very important job of raising a family.

All of the programs and services at Families First are offered at no cost to families thanks to funding from the Public Health Agency of Canada and the generosity of our partners.
