Becoming a Parent

Adoption outside Québec: The Process

Any adoption plan involving the adoption of a child domiciled elsewhere in Canada or in another country must be approved by the Secrétariat à l’adoption internationale. In the case of an international adoption, barring certain exceptional circumstances, an adoption agency certified by the Minister of Health and Social Services accompanies the parents through the many steps associated with this process.

In all cases of adoption, a positive recommendation following the psychosocial assessment is necessary for the process to move forward.
