We’re celebrating Father’s Day this year with a week of Dad profiles and things to do around the city. 

I’m a dad to two beautiful young girls, Ella 6, and June 2. I’m a former elementary teacher who now writes, records and performs music for kids in English and French. My company is one I run alongside my incredible wife Kim Thé. I’m best known for my TV series Will’s Jams,” which airs twice daily weekday mornings on Kids’ CBC television. I live in Kitsilano – the neighbourhood where I grew up. My parents’ home is a duplex (that I actually helped my father build 20 years ago) and we live upstairs, my parents downstairs. I am a huge fan of the multigenerational home.

Will’s favourite spots around the city

ArtStarts Gallery

Only gallery in Canada that exclusively shows kids’ artwork done with artists in residents in the classroom. On the last Saturday of the month, there are free performances/workshops for families at their gallery downtown and at the River Market.

Westside Music Together

Music together is an amazing early music program for young children. We did it with both of ours. There are franchises all over –  check it out and start singing!

Various locations

Dads of Vancouver: Will Stroet - Beaucoup Bakery

Beaucoup Bakery

Best pastries in town and great coffee. I love their double baked almond croissant. I have a weakness for amazing French pastries and this place really reminds me of being in Paris.

2150 Fir Street, Vancouver


I’m not much of a yogi myself, but my older daughter loves this place. They run classes, camps and drop-in classes. All the programs are great!

Café Salade de Fruits

We love this place more than any other for date night. We’ve been going since we first started dating. Wonderfully executed and affordable French cuisine and fun, engaging staff.
