From Origins Canada

Origins has been working very hard to get the government to listen. And so it begins…

Dear Members and Friends,

It is my great pleasure to finally be able to announce that Origins Canada has been successful in securing a Senate study into the postwar adoption mandate. The study will take place on March 20, 21 and 22, 2018 in Ottawa.

Any mother, adoptee, or organization that would like to make a submission about your experiences may do so by writing a letter to the clerk of the committee. Mothers may want to include information about your experiences in Canada’s maternity homes, hospitals, and the lifelong trauma they have endured.

Adoptees may want to include information about suffering from issues of abandonment, attachment, mirroring, secrecy of adoption records, reunion, or any other issues you feel are important for the senate to know about the adoptee perspective.

Please mail your submissions asap to:

Attention: The Clerk

Senate Committee, Social Affairs Science and Technology

Victoria Building

140 Wellington St.

Ottawa, Ontario

K1A 0A4
