The Post Adoption Disclosure Service in New Brunswick provides services to:

  • Adult adoptee
  • Birth Parents
  • Birth siblings
  • Adoptive Parents

They are provided with non-identifying information about each other as well as the option of being placed on a reciprocal register to facilitate a reunion.

An adult adoptee can also request a search for a birth relative that is not registered. Any identifying information can be released once written consents are received by both parties.
