Families are the heart and soul of our society. They help give children – the next generation – the best start and provide support as they move through life. Strong families help build strong communities, a prosperous economy and a more secure future.
Ontarians build their families in different ways. Many – including heterosexual couples, same-sex couples, and single people – use adoption and assisted reproduction services. But barriers like cost, lack of information, system weaknesses, location, work constraints and stigma, prevent many Ontarians from accessing these services and keep many children waiting to be adopted.
