Every year, on May 28 — the birthday of the Dionne Quintuplets — we celebrate National Multiple Births Awareness Day with picnics and events attended by multiple birth families in cities and towns across Canada.
Note that local events put on by Chapters may be scheduled for the weekend immediately before or after May 28, so be sure to confirm the date of any you wish to attend!

It was not an easy decision to make but in consultation with MBC,
TTMAC has decided to cancel the 2020 MBC Conference in Canmore this Fall.
With unknown regulations that will be in place in October and travelling being so uncertain, the safest choice for all our POMS across Canada was to cancel this event. We do hope that Dorothy will find her way to the Land of Oz sometime in the future so that we can walk down that yellow brick road of parenting together! Words cannot express how disappointed TTMAC is to not be able to host the conference this year and we will miss the personal, face-to-face connections this always brings BUT we are excited with the "teaser" MBC has left us! Until we know more, we will leave you with the WISE WORDS of Dorothy...There is NO PLACE LIKE HOME! Stay Safe. Stay Healthy.
