“Diversity encourages multiple viewpoints that are so important for innovation, makes it more unlikely that groupthink will dominate the group, and makes the emergence of group genius more likely.”
― Sandra L. Bloom, Restoring Sanctuary: A New Operating System for Trauma-Informed Systems of Care
I'm so excited to introduce our new community ACEs Connections in Ontario, Canada to everyone! Thank you for visiting our page!
Who We Serve
This website is a shared space for any parent, child, student, individual or professional interested in learning about ACEs, resilience building, personal or community healing, and trauma informed best practices.
What We Do
This is your ACEs Connection for Ontario. You will find updates, personal stories, like-minded individuals, news, research, resources, and events related to ACEs and trauma informed best practices with a focus on Ontario. Information, resources and events collected serve to inform and engage the people, communities and organizations of Ontario, Canada. We are just getting started so resources and information will build up over time. We are always looking for new voices and perspectives in the ACEs movement.
YOU ARE A GENIUS and your point of view matters! You are welcome to use all our resources, attend the events that are posted, take courses, or simply read our blogs. Your contributions such as comments, suggestions, shared resources or interests can also help us build our community and provide better service.
