Family Fun Canada is a digital media company that provides daily content to an engaged online audience of Canadian parents.
The brainchild of Melissa Vroon and Voula Martin, two moms and best friends since high school, Family Fun began in 2008 when they launched their first website, www.familyfuncalgary.com, out of frustration with continually missing out on the best family events. They saw a need for a website where parents could see all the upcoming family-friendly events and activities in their city at a glance, then set out to fill that need.
The city sites are anchored by the national family travel and adventure website www.familyfuncanada.com offering parents reviews of great destinations to travel with kids, be it road trips or getaways to warmer locations.
Family Fun Canada has been, from its very inception and every step thereafter, a labour of love and a learning experience for its founding partners who wanted to craft quality websites catering to families looking for great entertainment. For this reason, they were honoured to be nominated for the 2013 MOMpreneur of the Year award, in 2014 for the Globe & Mail’s Remarkable Small Business award and in 2018 for an Alberta Woman Entrepreneur Award.
Today Family Fun is a team of seven, with a crew of talented freelance contributors, all committed to family, fun, adventures and travel.
