Vancouver is no particularly different compared to other cities when it comes to court practice that child custody is usually granted to mothers. However, there are exceptions and many children in Vancouver are growing up and being raised by their fathers, as the residential parents. Single dads face some unique legal, financial, social and other problems. My name is Kyo Maclear, and most people know me as the Canadian writer. I am, also, a single dad who inspired me to launch and dedicate this webpage to all those single dads out there and provide them with advice, support and a virtual place to gather.
