Dress Purple Day


Every October, Children’s Aid Societies across Ontario raise awareness about the important role that individuals and communities play in supporting vulnerable children, youth, and families through the provincial Dress Purple Day campaign. The campaign is more important than ever, since the COVID-19 pandemic has created additional stressors for families, and in some cases has increased risk for the well-being and safety of children and youth.

This year, Dress Purple Day will take place on Wednesday, October 27, 2021.

We are calling on all Ontarians to wear something purple to show children, youth, and families that they are here to help!

Here’s what you can do:

  • Ontario Dress Purple Day 2021 – October 27, 2021. Register online using these easy steps:
