Answers to Some Common Questions

A - Adoption is the legal and permanent transfer of parental rights from a person or couple to another person or couple. Adoptive parents have the same responsibilities and legal rights as biological parents.

Q - What are the different types of adoption?

A - There are five main categories of adoption.
1. Adopting an infant, child, or youth from the Canadian child welfare system (Public)
2. Adopting an infant or child (Private)
3. Adopting a child from another country (International)
4. Adopting a stepchild/children
5. Adopting a birth relative (Kinship adoption)

Q - What are the qualifications to adopt?

A- In Canada, adoption is regulated provincially. That means the qualifications and regulations around adoption may change slightly depending upon where you live. They may also differ depending upon whether you adopt privately, through the public system, or internationally. No matter what province you live in, all potential adoptive parents must complete a homestudy that has been conducted by a qualified social worker. Most provinces require some type of adoption readiness training or preparation before parents are permitted to adopt.
