The newest Provincial statuary holiday in Ontario, Family Day falls on February 16, 2009.  In anticipation of Family Day, a partnership of social service organizations serving families are defining Family Day by creating a culture of inclusion to embrace the diversity of family to honour this new civic holiday.  To celebrate we have created an interactive On-Line Photo Gallery project, www.FamilyDayToronto.org.  This all-embracing campaign invites people to submit photos and stories of their self-defined families before February 16,  to illustrate the great diversity of family structures in our communities. This is a call to participate and endorse a broad definition of family.
