Connecting Families, Removing Barriers to Adoption 2020

November 25, 2020 Media inquiries

Simplified and easier-to-navigate processes will improve Alberta’s adoption system for Albertans as we mark Adoption Awareness Month.

Adoption processes in Alberta are currently complex and create barriers for adoptees, birth parents and families. These changes will make it easier for families to navigate adoptions, increase accountability of adoption agencies, and improve processes for prospective adoptive parents. Additionally, in Bill 48, the Red Tape Reduction Implementation Act 2020, (No. 2), adult adoptees and former children in care will have improved access to their biological and family information.

“I’m proud to make changes that will help connect more children with forever loving homes and ensure that the adoption process is easier for prospective adoptive parents.”

Rebecca Schulz, Minister of Children’s Services
