McGuinty Government Opens Records For The First Time Since 1927A reader passed this information on to me in June, and I confess to being derilict in posting it immediately, as I should have.
Starting today, adopted adults and birth parents can get more information about their past.
Ontario is making it easier for many Ontarians to look for information about their birth relatives. The Access to Adoption Records Act, 2008 gives adopted adults and birth parents access to information that is currently sealed in their adoption records. Adopted adults and birth parents can also protect their privacy by filing a disclosure veto or no contact notice.
Individuals should contact Service Ontario to apply for information from their birth and adoption records. This service is free.
