International Adoptions

Adoptions are managed by each province, however it is the Federal Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration Canada that is responsible for the immigration process involved in international adoptions.

When applying to adopt a child who is a foreign national one who has to comply with the laws of the child's home country, Canadian laws and in some cases, other laws under the Hague Convention may apply. This is a convention that was entered into by many countries including Canada to prevent abuses such as child trafficking. Our office will be able to provide you with legal services that will facilitate the international adoption of a foreign national child.
