Pour l'Ontario / For Ontario

In Ontario, there are two pieces of legislation governing international adoptions.

The Child and Family Services Act(CFSA) protects children and families involved in domestic adoptions, as well as international adoptions that are completed in Ontario.

The Intercountry Adoption Act(IAA) sets the requirements for Ontario residents who are adopting a child whose adoption will be completed in another country.

For a list of Ontario adoption agencies/licensees authorized under CFSA or IAA to handle adoptions involving children outside of Canada, please link: http://www.children.gov.on.ca/htdocs/English/topics/adoption/internationaladoption.aspx
