Becoming a Parent

There are many students on campus who successfully complete their programs of study while caring for a new child. In preparation, we recommend browsing our tip sheets which provide information on relevant policies and resources, and the information under Pregnancy & Adoption. We also suggest registering for one of our parenting workshops.

If you need information on taking a leave to plan for your new child, please visit our Family Leaves section.

Register for the Expectant Parents Group for U of T parents and their partners.

Staff members at the Family Care Office are also available to meet with you individually to discuss your particular situation. To book an appointment, please call 416-978-0951 or email
