Welcome

We make it easy for expectant parents who are considering adoption to connect with hopeful adoptive parents

Looking for an adoptive family for your baby?

Hope to connect with a prospective birthmother?

What We Do


Canada Adopts! is Canada’s leading open adoption meeting place, connecting expectant parents who are considering adoption with families that are hoping to adopt.

As adoptive parents, we know firsthand how stressful and frustrating finding an adoption match can be. When we were adopting, we ran into one obstacle after another. Then we posted our profile online and a short time later our son’s birthmother found us and changed our lives forever.

Since 2001, our adoption profiles have given countless adoption-ready families and expectant parents the opportunity to connect, get to know each other, and successfully build families in a safe, pressure-free, confidential setting.

Whether you’re looking for ways to expand your outreach efforts or facing an unplanned pregnancy and are considering adoption, learn how we can help you take control of the process and find the family that’s right for you today.
