If you are an adopted person who is 18 years old or older, you can request birth information. You can visit Service Ontario to find out how to apply for birth information, as well as what to do if you have urgent reasons for your search such as severe mental or physical illness. There are also instructions on how to add or remove your name from the Adoption Disclosure Register, and how to set your preferences for contact.

If your adoption took place at Family & Children's Services of the Waterloo Region, please contact the Adoption Subsidy and Disclosure Worker at 519-576-0540 or email for non-identifying birth information.
