The site «Québecadoption.net»
was mainly developed in French. In Decembre 1997, when it was
launched, there was absolutely no other source of information
on adoption in Québec. Just last year, the SAI (Secrétarait
à l'adoption internationale), the provincial authority
on international adoption for Québec, has finally put together
some pages in English. For domestic adoption, Youth Protection
Centres are supposed to be available in English.
Over the years, we had very little feedback and questions by
English reading Quebecers. So, our motivation to maintain these
pages has been low. Without demand, why should we continue to
offer this service? We still keep these few pages here but updates
are not frequent.
Since February 2006, international adoption in Quebec is under
a new law that makes significant changes to the previous situation.
We have modified the French pages explaining the process. Has
, the SAI's pages explaining the international adoption process
in English are NOT updated. I do not have time to translate pages
our new presentation of international adoption in English. If
you have time and want to help in translating to English, please
write to me at
Here are is the content still available in English.
