The Association for Bright Children of Ontario (ABC Ontario) is a volunteer advocacy group for bright and gifted children and adolescents. Established in 1975, we are the only provincially recognized advocate for bright and gifted children in the education system in Ontario, both at the local level in school boards and with the Ministry of Education.
We are dedicated to providing support to bright and gifted children and their parents through networking and enrichment opportunities, local workshops, and an annual provincial conference.
We are a not-for-profit registered charity. YOU can support our mission by becoming a member or making a charitable donation. To make a donation to our local chapter or to sponsor a specific event, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Every single donation, regardless of size, makes a difference to the children in our community.
ABC believes that all children, including bright children, deserve to be accepted for who they are. They deserve the opportunity to realize their potential as fully as possible.
ABC is interested in the special needs of all bright and gifted children, regardless of linguistic or socio-economic background. Children who are gifted with another exceptionality (referred to as "twice-exceptional" or "2e") are welcome in our group.
Our membership has families in public schools, private schools, and who are home learning as well. We're all working to raise bright and gifted children and supporting one another on the journey.
