What to expect at the ACO’s Provincial ARE 2024 Professional Day

   Networking Opportunities: We understand the value of building connections with colleagues from agencies across the province. That is why we have put an emphasis on creating a networking-friendly space throughout the day.
Interactive Education and Workshops: As Professional Day centres around education, we’re thrilled to bring engaging and relevant topics that adoption professionals can apply directly to the different aspects of their work.
Empowering Stories: The ACO is continuously appreciative of all of the volunteers who attend the event and share their journeys in our panel discussions. Every year, we are honoured to create an environment where adoption professionals can learn directly from individuals with lived experience.

Please note: A more detailed agenda is currently being created by the ARE Steering Committee.

The ARE Steering Committee welcomes CAS workers, private practitioners, and other professionals from organizations that support children/youth who grew up in care to share their insights and engage in conversations monthly to help plan for our AREs. If you are interested in attending a Steering Committee meeting, please contact [email protected].
