Becoming a Parent

International adoption with the assistance of a certified agency

Important Notice

This page is being updated. Meanwhile, as the information currently online may not be complete, we invite you to consult the French version. Thank you for your understanding.

If you wish to adopt a child domiciled outside Québec, you must first make sure you meet Québec’s adoption criteria. Then, based on those criteria, you must choose the country from which you wish to adopt a child.

Once you have chosen a country, you must contact the certified agency for that country. The agency will advise and support you in your adoption project and undertake adoption procedures on your behalf.
