Who can join?
Membership is open to all single parents, whether by separation or divorce, death of a spouse or having never been married.
Custody of the children is not a factor. The non-custodial parent is still a parent! Our close “family” of members and regular family activities can help the children adapt to the changes in their family.
Why Should I Join?
Joining the Toronto Area Chapter of the One Parent Family Association is like joining a family you didn’t know you had and that you actually like spending time with.
We are an open welcoming group of people who can understand the challenges of being a single parent. Whenever we get together, we always bring a positive attitude and do what’s best for our kids.
If you’re looking to get out and do some fun stuff while building new friendships for you and your kids, then this is the place to be.
What do I get?
In addition to all the reasons above, Toronto and Area OPFA Chapter members also get:
- Priority notification and registration for events
- Eligible for subsidized events
- Private Members-Only Facebook Group
- Opportunities for high school students to get volunteer hours
- Opportunity to host approved events
- Voting rights on some chapter matters
- and lots of FUN!
How much does it cost?
The annual membership fee is determined by the National Board of Directors and is currently $50 per year.
Why do I have to pay?
The annual fee goes towards administrative costs such as financial reporting, national marketing, insurance costs for events and board of directors. These administrative costs are critical in order for us to provide our members with the best possible value, and as many opportunities to get support, as well as get connected with other parents. For more details as to why READ THIS.
Can I attend events even if I’m not a member?
Yes! Many of our events are open to any single parent and their kid(s) . Or, if you’re a married parent flying solo (maybe your spouse travels a lot, or isn’t able to come out with you), you’re still welcome to participate in most events as a non-member). However, there may be an extra fee, and you will not be eligible for any subsidies or priority registration. Join our email list (CLICK HERE) to get notified of events, or follow our Facebook Page for updates. Note that our Facebook Group is only for members.
I still have questions!
