Welcome to Adopt4Life—Ontario’s Adoptive Parent Association!

Adopt4Life is a not-for-profit charitable organization. We support people considering and preparing for adoption and other permanency plans, adoptive parents, and kinship and customary caregivers, across Ontario. Our community provides peer-support, education, advice, access to resources and referrals to experts. We also work to raise public awareness of key issues that matter to adoptive, kin and customary care families and advocate on their behalf with decision-makers. At Adopt4Life, we believe in the power of family and permanency to help children and youth meet their potential.


Adopt4Life would like to thank the Ministry of Children, Community, and Social Services for investing in permanency for adoptive, kinship and customary care families and understanding the critical importance of Parent2Parent Support. We are truly stronger together.
