During November (which is Adoption Awareness Month in North America), the ACO provides education and connection for those impacted by adoption and permanency in Ontario. We offer webinars, panels, quick bite chats, and meet-ups.

This month is an excellent opportunity for adoptees, birth/original parents, adoptive, kinship, customary care families, pre-adoptive families, extended family, and the professionals who work with them, to learn and connect with one another. Adoption and Permanency Education Month covers many different relevant topics to adoption and permanency journeys through keynotes, seminars, and workshops. We invite everyone in the adoption galaxy to join!

We have events throughout the entire month! View the full calendar of events here.
