WHAT IS ADOPTION?
Adoption is the process whereby a non-biological parent assumes the role of parent. The two most common adoptive situations are where a couple adopts a child, or where one spouse adopts the biological child of the other spouse.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS?
The Province of Alberta provides packages with forms that can be completed to finalize an uncontested adoption. Contact the Queen’s Printer at MacDougall Centre for more information, or to order online, search under ‘Adoptions’ on the Alberta Queen’s Printer website.
