Structured Analysis Family Evaluation (SAFE) home study

The S.A.F.E. home study is a family assessment completed by your Adoption Practitioner involving discussions about your motivation to adopt, experience with children, family histories and your understanding of adoption. Documents, references and a home visit are required.

Parent Resources for Information, Development and Education (PRIDE)

P.R.I.D.E. is a mandatory 27-hour training that helps prospective adoptive applicants learn to best meet the needs of adopted children. 
Before registering for PRIDE, speak with your Adoption Practitioner to decide which option is best for you:

Privately, with a PRIDE trainer and team, delivered on a live, virtual platform focused on domestic and international adoption (as well as public adoption).
Through the Ontario Association of Children's Aid Societies, a self-directed training focused on adopting older children in extended care.
