British Home Child Day

In 2011 the Ontario Government proclaimed September 28thBritish Home Child Day’ in Ontario, “to recognize and honour the contributions of the British Home Children who established roots in Ontario.”  The then Member of Provincial Parliament for Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry, Jim Brownell, had worked tirelessly to ensure that the legacy of these children would be remembered in Ontario for generations to come.  Throughout Ontario, events take place annually to commemorate British Home Child Day.
