ACO’s Provincial ARE 2024 | Let’s Get Started

ACO’s Provincial ARE 2024

The ACO’s Provincial Adoption Resource Event (ARE) 2024 is only a few months away, and it is time to let us know how your agency would like to participate in this year’s event. Discover how you and your agency can get involved by reviewing the three options below and registering.

    Profile a Child, Youth or Sibling Group at the ARE
Registration and Material Submission Deadline: Friday, March 8th, 2024 | Register Now!

If your agency would like to profile a child, youth and/or a sibling group and set up an agency table at this year’s Provincial ARE, please register here. Once registered, an email outlining the next steps and important dates will be sent to you. Also, an AdoptOntario Clinical Coordinator will connect with you to go over the event details and answer any questions your agency may have.

Presenter Updates! This year, presenters will only be asked to write an ARE profile for the Online Platform on the AdoptOntario website for the children or youth they are profiling. There will not be any pre-recorded or live presentations for this event. Workers are kindly requested to participate in person on Saturday, April 13th, 2024, to speak to prospective adoptive parents. Following the event, the Virtual Venue (an online portal to access event recordings and speak to families virtually), managed by Midland57, will be available for participating workers to speak with families virtually. Further details will be provided after registration.

    Set Up an Agency Table at ARE
Registration Deadline: Friday, March 8th, 2024 | Register Now!

If your agency doesn’t have children or youth to present at this event but would still like to engage with prospective adoptive families in person on Saturday, April 13th, 2024, we invite you to set up an agency table at this year’s ARE. Register your agency booth here!

    Participate in Professional and ARE Day
If you would like to participate as an attendee at this year’s Professional Day and ARE Day (without an agency table), we are excited to host you! We encourage other agency workers/students to attend Professional Day to gain a better understanding of the adoption process and how they can begin those conversations with the children and youth they work with. An official invite, which will include a tentative agenda, will be sent out in the following weeks outlining the event’s details and how to register.
