Description

Adoption is the process through which a child becomes a permanent part of a new family.

Types of Adoption:

spacer
Coverage Orientation Meetings and Preparation Workshops
These are available with most agencies and will help you decide whether adoption is right for you and for whom you would be the best parents.

The Homestudy
A homestudy is an assessment process between you and a qualified adoption social worker. The homestudy helps decide whether you are able to assume the responsibilities of being an adoptive parent and for which children you are most suitable and capable of being a parent.
spacer
Eligibility To adopt a child in Manitoba you must be a Manitoba resident 18 years of age or older. In most cases a mandated adoption agency/regional office must do an assessment of your ability to parent.
spacer
Applying After making the decision to adopt, applying is the first step. You need to apply to a Child and Family Services agency for adoption of permanent wards. You may apply to a licensed adoption agency or a Child and Family Services agency for other kinds of adoptions.
