Post-Adoption Registry - Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Post-Adoption Registry?

The Post-Adoption Registry provides search and reunion services to eligible family members who were involved in an adoption that was granted in Manitoba. The Registry is operated by the Department of Family Services.

What happens when I register?

If you register and someone has already registered for contact with you, you will be notified. You will then be able to discuss options for the exchange of identifying information and be assisted with making contact.

If you register and someone has not already registered for contact with you, you may request that the Registry conduct a search on your behalf.

What if I was adopted outside of Manitoba?

If your adoption was granted in another province or country, the Registry is unable to provide services. However, the Registry will provide the name and address of an agency you can contact to inquire about services they may have available.

How do I register or get more information?

If you live in Manitoba and would like more information about the Post-Adoption Registry or would like to obtain a registration form, contact your local child and family services agency or the Registry. If you live outside of Manitoba, contact the Registry directly (toll-free at 1-855-837-5542).
