Greetings, Canada and beyond!
The Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project (CAN-FAP) is Canada’s best-known and feistiest pro-foreskin advocacy group. We promote foreskin education, appreciation, and stimulation, and advocate for the human right of all children — male, female and intersex — to grow up with intact genitals.

BREAKING NEWS: After almost 20 years, the Canadian Paediatric Society (CPS) has finally updated its position statement on newborn circumcision. With this update they maintain their position, held since 1982, that they do not recommend infant circumcision, but once again they fail to acknowledge that the male foreskin is a pleasure organ with several valuable functions, and fail to acknowledge the crucial human rights issues inherent in the forcible amputation of healthy, normal body parts from non-consenting children. CAN-FAP's official statement in regards to the CPS's new position statement will be available shortly; in the meantime journalists can contact CAN-FAP founder Glen Callender at 604-628-7012 or email@example.com

Handout/poster: Four reasons why Canada’s baby boys should keep their foreskin! Also available in printable PDF here.
Stay tuned for much more information about foreskin and the human rights of children! But for now, let us show you one of the many reasons why we think it’s time for Canada to cut infant circumcision. Below is an audio/video clip of a Canadian baby boy being circumcised in a Canadian hospital. For best results, turn on the subtitles (CC) and view in fullscreen mode. (If you’re the impatient type, the blood-chilling screams start at 3:00.)
What do you think, eh? CAN-FAP believes it’s time for Canada to join the 21st Century and protect our children from this unnecessary and harmful surgery. Circumcision is for consenting adults only!
We hope to see you at our upcoming events in Vancouver and beyond! Thanks for stopping by... and get ready for sex ed like you’ve never seen it before!
