Every October Children’s Aid Societies across the province raise awareness about the rights of children and youth to safety and well-being, and the responsibility of adults and community services to help children, youth, and families who need support. On Ontario Dress Purple Day we join together with our key partners, Boards of Education, schools, and child care centres and homes, to share this positive message that help is available and to celebrate the community that cares for kids and families.
This year Ontario Dress Purple Day will take place on Thursday, October 24, 2019. That evening, Niagara Falls, The Fort Erie Peace Bridge and the Welland Canal Bridge will be going purple in recognition of this important day. Please visit one of these locations and take a selfie in front of the purple lights and include #IBREAKthesilence and tag us to share and show that you care!
