Reports and Assessments

  1. Voice of the Child/Children’s Voices Report – this report provides the child the opportunity to share their views and have them heard when their best interests are decided in the family justice system.
  2. Adoption Home Study Report – No matter what kind of adoption you choose in Canada, you’ll need a home study in order to get it started. For adoptive parents in most provinces, a home study is the first step in the process — an assessment of your skills and talents as a potential parent. Although you can start your adoption search prior to getting your study approved, your adoption won’t be finalized until your home study is completed.
