About the Program

CAPC programs provide fun and inclusive activities to support healthy families. Activities relate to nutrition, health, parenting and child development. CAPC programs help parents recognize the needs of their children, and help them connect to resources that will support those needs, so each child is ready for school and ready to make the best possible start in life.

CAPC programs are offered in multiple locations throughout Simcoe County and offer free nutritious foods and other resources to eligible families. Visit our events calendar for CAPC, Next Step and MotherCare program locations and dates near you. You can also learn more at Simcoe County CAPC CPNC – MotherCare Facebook page.

The CAPC program also offers a wide variety of specific information program sessions. Topics may include Young Parent Supports, Nutrition and Food Skill building, Parenting Programs, and Early Learning/Family Literacy Programs. The information program sessions are tailored to meet the needs of each community. Eligibility for each of the program sessions varies.

We also have programs and work in partnership with other agencies to provide supports needed by people who are new to Canada. You can learn more here.

Read more about CAPC services and programs in our CAPC Information Booklet.
