In terms of the provision of child welfare services, Ontario operates differently than all other Canadian provinces and territories. Adoption assistance is not funded at the national level, and therefore all funding for post-adoption support must come from the individual provinces. In Ontario, adoption-related services are provided by one of 52 Children’s Aid Societies (CAS). Funding is at the discretion of the individual CAS, and as a result, services vary widely across the province. Some agencies do not offer any post-adoption supports at all. Others provide one-time or limited funding.
