Adoption Online



Welcome to Indigenous Adoption Online (AOL). Adoption Online is training for caregivers, pre-adoptive parents, post-adoptive parents, social workers, interdisciplinary professionals, and anyone working in the field of Aboriginal/Indigenous child and family service delivery.

AOL identifies historical and contemporary impacts of colonization, inter-generational trauma, and the regeneration of positive culture identity development. Learning from the Adoption Online training activities supports a commitment to creating and maintaining cultural connections by promoting the holistic well-being of Indigenous children.

AOL is delivered over an 7-week period and is accessible 24 hours a day. Participants can expect 3-5 hours a week of study to complete Adoption Online training. AOL’s flexible, self-paced, and asynchronous format engages participants and is offered through our Moodle learning management system.

“I wish to thank you for recommending the AOL course when I first sent you an inquiry back in April. It was a great learning experience! I have much more to learn, of course, but I now have the tools and resources to help me on my journey as a parent.”
– Richard, AOL Participant, Spring 2015
