The “Relative Adoption” process differs from other adoptions in Ontario in several ways. Most significantly, a relative adoption can often be completed directly through the Family Court without the involvement of either a private adoption practitioner or a Children’s Aid Society. Relative adoptions are also the only adoptions in Ontario for which a home study and adoption training is not required.
