Dove Men+Care in partnership with Jigsaw Casting is seeking Dads across Canada who will be on paternity leave between Jan to March 2019 for a new content series.

Concept
This is a content series that follows several fathers on their paternity leave journey. A documentarian will follow each father at different times throughout their paternity leave. Dads will also be given GoPro cameras to document their unique process from preparing financially to the experiences of spending time with their new child at home. Our goal is to create content that’s both emotionally and intellectually engaging, connecting the viewer with the real stories of families going through this experience. Our hope is that more men will take advantage of the Governments paternity leave program.

Seeking the following fathers who are planning on taking paternity leave anytime during the 1st year of your child’s life – Minimum 4 weeks or more:
1. Urban Professional Dad – Successful Professional who had his career as a priority until the moment he decided to have a child.
2. New Canadian Dad – Someone who has been in Canada for 5 years or less.
3. Blue Collar Dad – Someone who works in any type of blue collar field – E.G. Manual work, tradesman, craftsman, construction or auto worker, etc.
4. LGBTQ Dad – One of you is taking a turn at paternity leave.

6. Freelance Dad – Someone who works freelance gigs/jobs.
7. Adoptive Parent Dad – Someone who has just adopted a child (We are open on the age of your child in this scenario).
8. Single Dad – Someone who does not have a partner and will be raising this child on their own.
9. Other Dad – Someone with a story that does not fit the above categories.
