Welcome to the Kindness Program!

Congratulations to The Beatrice Watson-Acheson Foundation!

Forty-seven years of teaching Humane Education in the schools in Toronto, Ottawa and Barrie areas. Thank you to all our dedicated Directors, Teachers and Kindness Dogs! Cameron's dream of teaching kindness and respect for all life, promoting responsible pet care, and encouraging children and adults to become more empathic and caring, has reached a milestone!

NOTICE: Due to Covid-19 and Government restrictions, our Kindness Teachers and their Kindness Dogs are unable to visit students in the classroom, as we have done for the past 47 years.

However, we have designed some activities that you can do at home with your parents, or online with your classroom teacher.

In the future, if you wish to have The Kindness Program presented at your school, follow this link for information regarding our free school visits.

Are you in GRADE 7 or 8?

We appreciate your interest in our annual Grade 7 and 8 Kindness Contest. Unfortunately with the ongoing Pandemic, the Foundation decided that it would be too difficult to run our contest and pass out contest information to students.

As visitors are presently not permitted in the classroom, we are bringing our Kindness activities to you online!

We would still like you to hear from you and for you to send us your stories and artwork!
