Help Centre what do you need help with?

Can I adopt a child from countries experiencing armed conflict or natural disasters?

No. Canada follows the recommendations set out by the Hague Convention: Children from countries suffering from armed conflicts and natural disasters should not be considered for international adoption, and family tracing should be the priority in all cases.
