    For your jurisdiction, answer the following questions:

    • What is adoption?
    • What is the name of the Ministry dealing with adoption in your province or territory?
    • What form does adoption take?
    • Who are the children being adopted?
    • Who may adopt?
    • What type of screening takes place for the adopting family?
    • What support services are provided by the government related to the adoption?
    • What are some of the legal requirements for international adoption?

  2. Visit the Ontario Ministry of Community, Family and Social Services’ guide for international adoptions to learn some of the issues that must be considered for international adoption.

  3. Work in a group to present your findings in a bulletin board display.
