Ontario Dress Purple Day: October 24

Ontario Dress Purple Day takes place across the province annually on October 24. It is a day to proclaim that every child and youth has a right to safety and well-being. It is also a day to remind all adults that it is everyone’s responsibility to keep kids safe and to speak up for children and youth who need help.

Ontario children’s aid societies partner with boards of education, schools, and childcare centres to help educate child and youth about their rights to safety and wellbeing. To support this, and in response to inquest recommendations, the Ontario Association of Children’s Aid Societies, in collaboration with Boost Child & Youth Advocacy Centre, developed materials for teachers and early child educators to use to talk to kids about their rights to safety and well-being. The materials also help children and youth identify safe adults in their circle of support to go to for help. The prevention materials are age-appropriate, evidence-based, meant to empower children and youth. The goal is to help children and youth, regardless of the situation, and include topics such as Getting HelpSelf-Esteem, and Physical Touch.

Join us in a sea of purple on October 24! Access all the information and materials you need to participate in Ontario Dress Purple Day here!
