Custodian of Adoption Information

Description (Service) The Register provides a means for adopted adults and their birth parents, adult siblings and birth grandparents to obtain identifying information about each other and to meet if they wish. Non-identifying information may also be available.  
If an adoption was planned and completed entirely outside of Ontario, the Register will make referrals to the appropriate authority.
