Adoption and Permanency Education Month

Adoption and Permanency Education Month

What is it?

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!

Is this for me?

We encourage all those impacted by adoption and permanency journeys to join us for Adoption and Permanency Education Month.  This event is open to everyone in the adoption and permanency galaxy, including adoptees, birth parents/family, adoptive, foster, kinship, and customary care families, and the professionals who work with them!
