Adopt4Life–Ontario’s Adoptive Parent Association, is a community of people with lived experience of adoption, that strengthens and empowers parents to achieve permanency for children so that they reach their full potential.


We believe that all adoptive, kin, and customary care parents have a right to advocacy, support and guidance throughout their lifelong journey.



Adopt4Life would like to thank the Ministry of Children and Youth Services (MCYS) for investing in permanency for adoptive families and understanding the critical importance of Parent2Parent Support. We are truly #strongertogether
