Supporting One Parent Families

We are glad you found us!

There truly is something for everyone here, whether your kids are young, teenagers or even fully grown and regardless of custody..

The OPFA has been there for one parent families for over 40 years. We are a non-profit volunteer organization.   Our activities are organized and run by parents just like you and everyone contributes to the success of the activities and the organization.   Volunteering not only helps make our activities a success — volunteering is truly one of the great “feel good” activities.   It’s also a way to meet new people in a safe and friendly environment.

Come out and have some fun!

You will find lots of activities for you and your family!  And we know that adults need adult time too so we have many great adult activities as well! However our organization is much, much more than activities.  We are focused on a full picture of life that includes:

Social – Meeting and spending time with like minded people

Sports – Getting out and having fun with well planned events

Support – Comes in many forms, advice to professional services

Structure – Weekly and monthly meetings, planned and easy to attend activities

Services – Referrals, discussions, vendor support and discounts when you need them most

Come for the kids — you’ll stay for the friendships!


Get connected with other single parent families. Build friendships for yourself and your kids. Connect with others through our online groups, as well as in person events and activities.


Our goal is create an environment which fosters the physical, mental and emotional health of both the parent and the children.  Those that are farther along in the journey are able to provide support to others based upon their experiences. 


Our organization creates a community for single parent families online as well as in your local area. We operate several activities through our chapters across Ontario.

Come for the Kids, Stay for the Friends.

Make Memories. Share Stories. Have Fun.
