Statement By The Prime Minister Of Canada on Father’s Day
June 19, 2021
Prime Minister Stephen Harper today issued the following statement to mark Father’s Day:

“Father’s Day is a chance to say thank you to our fathers and to celebrate the role they play in our families.

“Fathers take on various key roles including caregivers, teachers and role models. They are sources of strength for their families.  And their devotion, values and morals act as a foundation that helps shape who we become.

“Fatherhood is a lifelong commitment that involves guiding children and youth as they overcome life’s hurdles and grow into remarkable individuals.  This day is a chance to honour and celebrate paternal guidance, influence and support. 

“As Canadians celebrate Father’s Day, Laureen and I encourage all families to pay tribute to the men who fill this role and to honour those no longer with us. We wish all fathers and their families health, happiness and every success in the coming year.”
