MCCSS Adoption Resource Exchange (ARE) 2020

What is the MCCSS Adoption Resource Exchange (ARE)

The conference helps locate and match adoptive families with Ontario children needing adoption and is hosted in the Spring and Fall each year by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS). This year’s conference has been taken online, as a 2-day live virtual webcast.

Talk. Children’s Aid Societies (CASs) attend the event to profile children and youth in their care who are available for adoption. CAS staff are available to speak with prospective parents about a child or youth of interest, the public adoption process, and post-adoption supports available to adoptive families.

Explore. Through the Online Platform attendees will have an opportunity to view written profiles and videos of the children and youth by participating CASs. The Online Platform will be available through the AdoptOntario two weeks in advance and two weeks following the Adoption Resource Exchange conference.

Learn. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from professionals through an education presentation and learn from the experiences of adoptive parents through a panel presentation hosted by Adopt4Life and ACO families.

Respond. Attendees may submit an Expression of Interest Form online  which informs the CAS that they are interested in a child, youth or sibling group profiled at the event.
