We're glad you found us!

Association for Bright Children (ABC) is a provincial organization that connects families of bright and gifted children and supports families on their adventurous and sometimes challenging journey of raising gifted children. Subscribe to our email list to get information about our events in the community as soon as they are offered.


We know how important it is for children to meet peers they connect with and for parents to understand and advocate for their child. We host get togethers, learning opportunities, and parent education seminars throughout the year.
