Since 2013, Toronto Public Health has offered the Welcome to Parenting online program to share information on pregnancy, childbirth and caring for young babies (zero to six months).

On December 31, 2022, the Welcome to Parenting program will end. The Welcome to Parenting content is owned and hosted by a third-party service provider. This service provider has decided to end the program.

To ensure new users have enough time to complete the program classes, no new registrations will be issued on or after December 1st, 2022.

Toronto Public Health will continue to offer support to pregnant individuals and families with infants and young children in other ways. For more information and support related to pregnancy or parenting, please contact a Public Health Nurse by phone 416-338-7600 or via eChat.
