What to Expect at the ACO's Spring Provincial ARE 2021 

This year, the ACO has a lot in store for both perspective adoptive parents and adoption professionals! A detailed agenda will be released closer to the virtual event. This year’s ARE will include:

  • On Demand Videos by Child/Youth Workers
  • 1:1 Video Chat and Text Chat Feature between Workers and Perspective Adoptive Parents

  • Education for Perspective Adoptive Parents
  • A Panel Discussion lead by Adopt4Life

New and Noteworthy

The Adoption Council of Ontario is eager to be refocusing the AREs to remind us of the essence, needs and wishes of waiting children and youth. The ARE will be revamped with a new look and approach to continue to identify permanency for children and youth across Ontario.

To increase permanency for children and youth, the ACO will be taking an educational and child-centered focused approach to the ARE. Education for the ARE will provide tangible and direct tools and techniques on the key concepts of adoption for both prospective adoptive parents and adoption professionals.
