Acerca de

In March of 2018, the ACC received a Women and Gender Equality Canada grant to explore the root cause of economic insecurity for young women and gender diverse persons who age out of the child welfare system in Canada.


Join the Adoption Council of Canada, provincial, territorial and federal policy makers, national partners, and young women + who have aged out of care virtually on October 27, 2021.


The Aging Out Without A Safety Net symposium will review progress to date on identifying barriers to, and how best to support, the economic security of young women aging out of the child welfare system.


Our one day event will be filled with panels comprised of lived experts and professionals working to better the lives of youth and young adults aging out of the child welfare system.
