HomeFamily.net

HomeFamily.net is a website project of the Association that has roots in Saskatchewan but a reach around the world today. The mandate of the site is to provide current home economics information of interest to consumers in Canada, and specifically on the Prairies.

In the late 1990's the Association of Saskatchewan Home Economists (ASHE) created a website to honour the work of long time Western Producer columnist, Emmie Oddie, upon her retirement. Funds donated by readers and home economists across Canada have supported the site ever since though the Emmie Oddie Website Fund at the Canadian Home Economics Foundation/CHEF. ASHE transitioned the site to MAHE in 2011 and it was given a new look. Over time, much of the still-valuable content of the original website was moved to the new one and more content was added by local Professional Home Economists. 

In 2020-2021, the site was significantly redeveloped in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to add new resources on food safety, nutrition and food preparation information with articles to help build local food systems and stretch budgets further. HomeFamily.net is a resource for individuals seeking accurate, practical information, as well as agencies serving vulnerable families in Manitoba as a tool for improving the quality of life for their clients. This work was made possible by funding from the Governments of Canada and Manitoba through the Canadian Agricultural Partnership program.
