Adoption In Canada

Adoption is defined as "the legal transfer of parental rights and obligations from birthparent(s) to adoptive parent (s)". Such a simple definition for such a complex process!

In Canada, adoption is a provincially mandated issue, and as such, has rules and regulations regarding all aspects of adoption, that may differ, depending on where you reside.

The Adoption Council of Canada is your definitive source for information and links to current provincial guidelines.
