The Ontario SPCA is excited to announce the soon-to-be-launched Humane Education Program. The program has been designed with curriculum writers to utilize inquiry-led, play-based learning principles to support children in developing and maintaining positive relationships with pets.

Lesson plans and activities will engage students in learning age appropriate content, concepts and skills as they explore the relationships shared by people and their pets.  Teachers are encouraged to sign-up for more information.
