- I saw an ad in the Calgary Herald a few days ago that indicated that Ontario adoption records were now available. I did not clip it out, however.Marion----- Original Message -----From: Gord HulbertTo: Robert BoyntonCc: AFHSSent: Tuesday, October 21, 2008 10:17 PMSubject: Re: ADOPTIONSRobert Boynton wrote:
In my very limited experience, and excuse me if I am mistaken, my only comment is that Adoption records in Canada are a Provincial jursidiction..Hi all:
Perhaps one Province in Canada changed their restrictions on access to records.

This information just came to me on an Irish mailing list.
new legislation in Canada has made it possible for birth parents and adoptees to have access to the original identifying information regarding their adoptions. This is huge progress for people trying to find their birth families or the children who were placed.
There is the possibility of a 'no contact' clause that the original parties are able to place on file so that they cannot be contacted, but at least the identifying information is available.
Did I miss an announcement?
Can anyone verify this and if so how do we access the data?

I'm of the same opinion. Alberta made this info available a couple of years ago. My youngest daughter made good use of it.
