Parents with Newborn Baby

NICU families shouldn't have to do it alone.

We are a parent led, charitable organization providing education, support and advocacy for premature babies and their families.

Approximately 30,000 babies are born prematurely every year in Canada.

We continue to build on our momentum with peer support programs, resources for families and health care professionals, and research leading to improved outcomes and experiences for babies and families.

The CPBF head office is located on Treaty 13 territory, home to the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.

We note Treaty territory to recognize, reflect and actively participate in reconciliation with the Indigenous peoples on whose land we work and live.
