In general all events are open to the public unless otherwise noted. One exception is the Ontario South Assembly, which is for members only. Events can be specal speaker meetings, group anniversaries or special days dedicated our program (‘Al-Anon’ days, ‘Round-ups’, etc)
The default view for events is a simple list sorted by date. Click the event title for more information and (if available) to see the event flyer. You can switch to a Calendar view as well, if that works better for you. And you can perform a search for a specific date.
The power of our slogans
Many of our event are centered around Al-Anon Legacies (Steps, Traditions, Concepts) and tools such as our slogans.
“The Al-Anon slogans are simple yet profound tools that help remind us that our circumstances might not be as desperate as they first appear. Even if we are new to Al-Anon or too overwhelmed (…) to recall one of the many Al-Anon principles that may apply, these concise expressions of wisdom offer quick reassurance that we really are able to cope with whatever life brings. Prompting us to constructive action and to treat ourselves and others with compassion and respect. These simple slogans can put the entire situation in perspective.”
—from: “How Al-Anon works for Families & Friends of Alcoholics”.
Would you like to see your event on our site?

For all flyers PDF format is preferred. PowerPoint Presentations are usually too big to upload and our website software might not accept Excel and Word originals for security reasons (these can contain malicious code that lead to spreading of computer viruses, etc.).
