Search, Reunions & Registries
Family and relatives of adopted adults can use reunion services to find one another – either by doing an active search or by registering with the passive registry.
Post-Adoption Openness Registry
Adoptive parents, birth parents or relatives of an adopted child can register for the opportunity to share information after an adoption order is granted.
The registry is not restricted by age – so a match could be made with an adopted child who is still under 19 years old.
Birth parents of a child who may be placed for adoption, can register to receive notice of adoption details and, if appropriate, be involved in adoption planning.
Adoption Reunion Registry
Reunion services are only for individuals who are 19 years or older and who were involved in an adoption that took place in B.C. A registry as well as active search services are available.
