Post-Adoption Services

As of January 1 , 2017 we are making changes to the release of an adult  adoptee’s birth registration that affects:

  • adult adoptees;
  • birth parents of adoptees;
  • adult children of a deceased adult adoptee; and
  • adult children of a deceased birth parent whose child was placed for  adoption.

Before the changes come into effect, adult adoptees and birth parents can:

  • place a veto under the new process that will prevent the release of their  identifying information. This only applies to adoptions granted before  January 1, 2017; or
  • file a contact preference that will place limits on contact from the other  person but will not prevent release of their identifying information.
After January 1, 2017 the release of identifying information will be subject to any  vetoes or contact preferences placed by a birth parent or adult adoptee.

1. Guidance

The Saskatchewan Post-Adoption Registry maintains provincial records for those  adoptions that occurred in Saskatchewan. For information on eligibility and  services, see Post-Adoption Services in Saskatchewan.

2. Veto and Contact Preferences

Filing a Veto

Beginning January 1, 2016 birth parents and adult adoptees are able to place a veto under the new process, which will prevent the release of their identifying information on the adult adoptee’s birth registration. A veto can only be placed on adoptions that occur prior to January 1, 2017. 

A veto may be removed at any time by the person who placed it, or it expires upon their death. 

  • If a veto exists, the Ministry will not release identifying birth registration information to the person who requests it.
  • If no veto exists or it expires, the Ministry may release identifying birth registration information to the person who requests it.

Use this form to file a veto.

 

Filing a Contact Preference

As of January 1, 2016 birth parents and adult adoptees are able to place a contact preference under the new process, which will not prevent the release of their identifying information on the adult adoptee’s birth registration, but allows them to place limits on contact from the other person. Options for contact may include email or phone, or no contact at all.

Contact preferences apply regardless when an adoption occurs, but if an adoption occurs prior to January 1, 2017 birth parents and adult adoptees have the option to place a veto instead – you cannot place both. 

A contact preference can be amended or removed at any time by the person who placed it, or it expires upon their death

  • if a contact preference exists, the Ministry releases identifying information subject to the terms of the contact preference. The person receiving the information must agree to the terms of the contact preference before they receive the information.
  • if no contact preference exists, the Ministry may release identifying birth registration information.

Use this form to file a contact preference.
