There are a number of costs associated with running a website – website hosting, sending newsletters, staff time, website design, and more. Sometimes when you click on a link and make a purchase through that link we’re earning a small fee from that company.

We love to support our local businesses and organizations that provide great opportunities for southern Ontario area families. We love telling you about the places and events we love here. We also have good manners, which means if we don’t have something nice to say, we won’t say anything at all. If you wonder why an event, business, or organization isn’t listed on our website, it is possible it was overlooked (so send us an email at hello(at)activeparents.ca or fill out our event form or directory listing form). However, it is also possible that through personal experience we aren’t fans of a particular place or event, and have made the decision to leave it unlisted.
