We know that 30,000 children and youth in Canada’s child welfare system are eligible for permanent adoption, but only 2,000 are adopted each year.

Adoption is one way you can be an ally and Stand Up for Kids. It provides children and youth who are not living with their biological families with many benefits, including a sense of safety and stability, and it can improve their overall health and well-being.
