Every October, Children’s Aid Societies across Ontario raise awareness about the important role that individuals and communities play in supporting vulnerable children, youth, and families through the provincial Dress Purple Day campaign. Learn more about why it's not Child Abuse Prevention Month anymore and a call to join Dress Purple Day 2023!
We are focusing on centering the voice of our children and youth where eradicating all forms of oppression, racism, intolerance, prejudice, and discrimination remains a top priority. Together we will continue to speak up for every child and youth’s right to safety and well-being in all spaces.
Create a video to share with your friends, loved ones, and neighbours the message that help is available, they are not alone, and you are part of the community that cares for children, youth, and families.
