Kitchener-Waterloo Christian Home Educators’ Association (KWCHEA)
Our group consists of approximately 180 families from Kitchener, Waterloo, Elmira, New Hamburg, and the surrounding area. We meet together regularly to encourage and support one another in our God-given task of educating our children. We aim to do this by: regular support group meetings; sharing of information and resources; education and social group activities. We have several weekly co-ops, and programs that happen weekly and monthly. Our monthly parent's support group meetings are held one Saturday of each month, except for July and August. Due to insurance regulations, we are not permitted to have children under 12 attending the meeting. Nursing babies are permitted though. You do not need to be a member of our group to attend a parent support group meeting. Registered members will received a printed phone directory, monthly newsletters, and will be added to our support group email listing. KWCHEA does not require that all members agree with our Statement Purpose or our Statement of Faith. We do require that members accept that this is the policy of our group, and that all our support group activities will be conducted in a manner that is in line with our policy.

The Dundas-Grenville Christian Home Educators’ Association (DGCHEA) serves families who educate their children at home, in or near Dundas County, Ontario. Members also come from Leeds & Grenville (Spencerville, Cardinal, Prescott) and as far east as Finch. The group has no governing head, but collectively and cooperatively organizes weekly events and programs for children of all ages. In addition to weekly physical education classes and two semesters of history and science classes, the DGCHEA also organizes about a dozen educational field trips throughout the school year. The events and programs are recorded in an annual photo yearbook distributed to member families in the spring. The DGCHEA accepts participation of people from all backgrounds and faiths; all should understand that the group is fundamentally a Christian community, based on Biblical principles. The hope is that the group may be a place where parents can be supported in the principles they are teaching at home, and where children can make friends with other children, building relationships in a safe environment.
There is an annual membership fee of $10 that gives access to the Facebook group and email updates and helps cover minimal expenses.

Homeschooling Your Unique Learner in Canada
This group is open to parents who homeschool or are considering homeschooling their children that have UNIQUE needs, with or without a formal diagnosis. By UNIQUE, we mean those who learn differently than the ‘regular’ child, and who have academic or behavioural struggles.
The primary purpose of this group is to encourage and support Canadian homeschool families. We want to build a community of Canadian Homeschoolers that help and encourage one another on this journey. We hope that this group will be a place where you feel free to share your concerns and struggles, your successes and your accomplishments, but also a place to share curriculum choices and/or therapies that worked for your student - all with the intention of discovering strategies and creative ideas to help your student continue on the road to lifelong learning.

As I am getting more and more requests from individuals outside of Canada, I have added a question to help in the screening process.
