Benefits

Make a positive difference in the lives of children and families in our community. These positions offer excellent opportunities to apply your skills and talents in support of parents in our community. The Canadian Longitudinal Study of 22,500 children and youth demonstrates that ineffective parenting is 10 times as powerful in predicting behaviour problems as socio-economic barriers such as poverty.

About DPSN

DPSN was created in 1999 in order to address the gap in parenting supports identified in the 1998 Ministry of Community and Social Services "Making Services Work for People" initiative

We provide programs, resources and supports for parents and caregivers, including workshops, newspaper columns, community events and presentations, website, and service provider education and collaboration on projects. By supporting parents, DPSN helps children in Dufferin grow up to be productive adults and well-rounded community members.

Our Mission

Our mission is to encourage, educate and support parents of school-aged children by providing opportunities to build positive parenting skills and healthy community connections.
