Our Mission

The Adoption Council of Canada (ACC) is the umbrella organization for adoption in Canada

Based in Ottawa, the ACC connects and supports domestic, private and international adoptees, birth families, and adoptive and kinship families.

Our services include adoption resources, referrals, education and support.

As a national non-profit organization that receives little government funding, the ACC is greatly dependent on the support from its national membership base, as well as donations from the general public.


November is National Adoption Awareness Month!

Youth in and from care define permanency and share their adoption and aging out stories for World Children's Day and National Adoption Awareness Month. 

Make sure to follow the Adoption Council of Canada on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to watch their stories and support our Youth Speak Out teams!

You'll be able to find the videos as they are uploaded on our channel on Vimeo!
