About Halton Chapter
The ABC Ontario Halton Chapter is supported by many volunteers and parents of gifted children in the Halton area (Oakville, Milton, Burlington, Halton Hills (Georgetown, Acton).

There will be a mix of casual, social nights and informative sessions with expert speakers. There should be something to appeal not only to long-time ABC members, but also to parents of very young gifted children and parents of newly identified students.
