2018 Adoption Act Review Final Report

Publication type: 

A number of Canadian jurisdictions have amended legislation to achieve an increasingly more open approach to adoption records. In response to requests for improved access to identifying information in adoption records, the government of Prince Edward Island announced it would facilitate a public discussion on whether or not the PEI Adoption Act should be amended to allow for the opening of sealed records. An Advisory Committee was tasked with facilitating the public engagement process. This is the final report of the Advisory Committee.
