International Adoption in Canada

A Canadian citizen can adopt a child from a foreign country (including the US). There are several steps: -

1) Contact your Province/Territory - Ministry of Community and Social Services. They should give their approval.
2) Contact an adoption agency, which deals with International adoptions.
3) Contact CIC - to get immigration visa for the minor. It's important, since the minor can't enter Canada without having this document, even if you completed the adoption process in the child's country.
