The Home Children Day of Remembrance and Plaque Presentation

September 28 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

From 1869 to the 1940s, child aid organizations brought more than 100,000 impoverished British and Irish children to Canada to work on farms or as domestic helpers. On arrival in Toronto, they were brought to receiving homes before being placed with households where many of the children were denied the comforts of family life.

The plaque will be installed at 538 Jarvis Street, the site of the Dr. Barnardo’s Home charity receiving home and office from 1922 to 1948

Parking is available at 200 Wellington Street West and 27 Widmer Street
