In Canada, some provinces and territories offer programs to support families who adopt crown wards (children in foster care who cannot return home). Benefits are typically based on the territory or province from which the child was adopted.

Click on the province or territory below to learn about the community’s adoption subsidy program, including which children and families are eligible, what benefits are provided, how the program is funded, and more.

The information contained in NACAC’s Canadian profiles is updated periodically and was verified by the provinces for accuracy at time of publication. If you have questions about specific policies or regulations, please contact the provincial contact person listed at the beginning of each profile.
