Description / Summary

Men’s Sheds are modern, shared versions of the home workshops that have long been part of the Canadian way of life. The Canadian Men’s Sheds Association is a peer-run group that aims to build relationships between Canadian sheds, help new ones get started, and raise awareness about the friendly, inclusive, and creative spaces that sheds can offer. The goal in developing this toolkit was to use the wisdom and knowledge of men from across Canada who were involved and interested in Men’s Sheds. From 2014 to 2015 more than 70 men from coast to coast provided feedback about what works (and does not work) to get a Men’s Sheds up and running.
