Here is the official Media release explaining Family Fun Week!
Have Fun with your Family during
National Family Week!
From October 5 to 11, 2009, Canadians in communities across the country will come together for local celebrations during National Family Week. The week provides an opportunity to celebrate families and reflect on their importance in our lives.
The theme for this year’s National Family Week, Jump into Family Fun!, provides an opportunity to celebrate and promote the many different ways families have fun together, nurturing their physical, spiritual and emotional health.
Through National Family Week activities, family members can embark on a journey of rediscovery as they take the time to reconnect through play as a family.
National Family Week is a partnership initiative of The Canadian Association of Family Resource Programs (FRP Canada), a bilingual, not-for-profit association with members located in all provinces and territories. FRP Canada promotes the well-being of families by providing national leadership, consultation and resources to those who care for children and support families.
FRP Canada, together with 11 partner organizations, has produced resources with helpful tips and suggestions for fun activities that families can do together. These resources are available electronically at www.frp.ca/nfw
National Family Week partners include: BC Council for Families, BestStart/Health Nexus, Canadian Child Care Federation, First Nations Child & Family Caring Society of Canada, Green Communities/Active & Safe Routes to School, Invest in Kids, Lettuce Make Thyme Inc., Media Awareness Network, ParticipACTION, Safe Kids Canada, and THRIVE! The Canadian Centre for Positive Youth Development.
Please join FRP Canada and its NFW partners in celebrating families in all our communities during National Family Week, October 5-11, 2009!
