Welcome to the Victoria Men's Centre!

What we stand for

    The Victoria Men's Centre is the physical representation of a supportive men's network. It is a place for men to gain support, companionship, and a place to share concerns and experiences in a spirit of brotherhood.

    The Men's Centre is a friendly gathering place for individuals and groups of men to come together and explore ways of improving the world around them. It echoes the ancient pattern of a meeting place where in camaraderie men talk play games and tell stories.

Principles

  • We believe in and support men and women who are actively working to achieve equality.
  • We believe that positive models of masculinity will help create a just society and further each man's mission in life.
  • We believe in a wide range of social roles by which men live within their community passionately and compassionately.
  • We believe in peaceful resolution of conflict.
  • We believe in and promote the male role in parenting.
