Advocacy 

How do you think Ontario's adoption system could be improved? November is Adoption Awareness Month. During this month we want to raise awareness about the need for kids to have a family and families to have support. This is your chance to tell us how you think Ontario's adoption system could be improved. Here's what you can do.


Meet with your MPP

You are a game changer, use your voice this November.

As a family formed by adoption, you’re the expert. Your voice is the most impactful when lobbying for change and improvement in Ontario’s adoption system. We want to team up with you in order to make a difference!  

Get in touch with your local MPP’s office to let them know it’s Adoption Awareness Month and you would like to come in for a meeting to talk more about Ontario’s adoption system.

Not sure how to talk about it?

We’ve got your back! We’ve put together a resource package for you including a webcast to help get you ready, some tips on how to communicate the issues effectively and a booklet to leave with your MPP about the urgency of this matter.

Download the resource package which includes:

  • Advocacy preparation webcast
  • Tips For Advocacy by NACAC
  • Everything Changes with a Forever Family Booklet for MPPS
