"Throughout our adoption journey, AdoptOntario was an integral part of allowing us to connect and learn about the children and youth who were on permanency journeys." - Adoptive Family
On Wednesday, March 23, 2022, AdoptOntario invites you to Power of Permanency, an Online Adoption Event. Not only will you have an opportunity to learn more about adoption and available resources, but you will also learn about an amazing group of youth looking for permanency.
What is Power of Permanency?
Power of Permanency is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about how you can provide a loving home for a young person who desires a stable, supportive, and caring family. Youth over 15 make up almost half the children/young people in Ontario’s foster care system. As young people prepare to begin their journey towards independence, a family is crucial in providing them with the unconditional support they need as they navigate life’s challenges. Join us to learn more about these incredible young people and how you can support them as they grow and reach new milestones!
Date: Wednesday, March 23, 2022
Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Cost: No Fee
Registration Deadline: Registration is closed

This Online Adoption Event is open to AdoptReady families, NTL families and families that have started the homestudy process.
The Adoption Council of Ontario provides specialized training and education for all those touched by adoption and permanency journeys. There is a framework for understanding adoption and permanency journeys and all those living these journeys can benefit from this knowledge. In preparation for Power of Permanency, we welcome you to watch free on-demand webinars on The Importance of Permanency, Older Child Adoption, Parenting Teens on Adoption and Permanency Journeys, and ACEs, the Brain and Developmental Trauma.
What to Expect at an Online Adoption Event
At an Online Adoption Event, you will learn more about children, youth or sibling groups who are seeking adoptive parent(s), as well as information and resources about adoption. A presentation will be led by an AdoptOntario Clinical Coordinator who will be accompanied by the children/youths' adoption workers. They will provide you with information about the children/youths' interests, personality, needs, supports, and what an adoptive family would look like for these children or youth. In addition, you will also have the opportunity to hear from and ask questions to either an adoption professional or adoptive parent(s) regarding their experiences within adoption.
