How Much Adoption Actually Costs in Canada

Adoption can be both an exhilarating and extremely frustrating experience. But opting to parent and care for a non-biological child is one of the biggest gifts you can give another human. There are many children in need of loving homes and caregivers, and many to-be-parents seeking to meet this need for a wide range of reasons.

In Canada, those wishing to adopt have five main ways to begin their journey. They can opt for a public adoption (via the existing child welfare system), private adoption (adopting through a third-party agency either within Canada or abroad), international adoption (going south of the border, or overseas), adopting a relative (within Canada or abroad) or adopting a step child. Whatever your chosen path to adopting, there are often costs associated with the journey, and that’s not even considering how much it actually costs to raise a child.
