The first leader of the party was Donald Pennell, who was previously a candidate for the Ontario Liberal Party in the 1975 provincial election.
Some leading figures in the party support a Mixed Member Proportional (MMP) model, similar to the system used in countries such as Germany and Italy, to provide greater representation to smaller parties (the party is scheduled to hear a presentation on MMP at its annual meeting in April 2006).
Many of the Family Coalition Party's policies are also supported by the federal Christian Heritage Party, and some FCP candidates have campaigned for the CHP at the federal level.
