Adoption Awareness Month in Canada

It's Adoption Awareness Month, and so time to revisit the state of adoption in Canada. In May Conservative MP Maurice Vellacott tabled a motion calling on the Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills, and Social Development to examine current federal support for adoptive parents and their adopted children and report back to the Commons with its findings. The motion passed unanimously.

Vellacott wants to see improved services and resources for adoptive families and birth parents through government initiatives, and witnesses are being invited to make presentations before the committee. LifeCanada helped gather names of people to provide testimonials on adoption, and now it's launching a national education campaign to promote awareness of adoption and encourage the public to see adoption in a positive and compassionate manner.

Visit to see the impressive results.
