Presentation Transcript



  • Adopting through a public agency is much more tightly controlled than going through a private agency.

  • As a prospective adoptive parent, you have fewer choices. The focus of public agencies is on the safety and welfare of the child.

  • As a result, the priority is in finding the right set of parents for a child rather than the right child for a set of parents.


  • The CostsThere are usually no costs involved in adopting through a public agency


  • Private Domestic Adoption in Canada

  • Private domestic adoption refers to any adoption within Canada that is not arranged by a public agency.

  • "Private" in this context doesn't mean that the adoption is done quietly or in secret. In fact, most private domestic adoptions nowadays are open adoptions.

The Costs

  • The fees for a private domestic adoption vary considerably and can run anywhere from about $10,000-20,000.

  • The variation depends on how quickly or easily you can find a child, what method you use to do this, and where the child lives.
