Adoption Support Centre Celebrates 30 Years

Released on October 26, 2018

The Government of Saskatchewan will be proclaiming November as Adoption Awareness Month in honour of the Adoption Support Centre of Saskatchewan’s 30 years of service to Saskatchewan families.

“The Adoption Support Centre of Saskatchewan is an excellent partner, and we very much value the information, services and supports they provide to all individuals and families who are interested in, or connected through adoption in our province,” Social Services Minister Paul Merriman said.  “Over the past 30 years, the organization has had the opportunity to touch many lives and I congratulate them on reaching this very important milestone.”

The Adoption Support Centre of Saskatchewan began in 1988 as a group of adoptive parents providing support to one another.  It has since grown into a province-wide information service that provides referrals, resources and pre- and post-adoption support relating to domestic, international, private, step-parent and adult adoptions.

“We want people to know we are here to help,” Adoption Support Centre Executive Director Sylvia Cholodnuik said.  “We provide confidential support and information to everyone.  Whether you are prospective adoptive parents or a person who is pregnant and interested in learning more about adoption, or perhaps you are part of a family who has come together through adoption, or an adult adoptee wishing to connect to your birth family, and you need information and support.”

The Adoption Support Centre of Saskatchewan is hosting a fun 30th anniversary event at the Broadway Theatre in Saskatoon on October 27, 2018 with comedy magician Matt Gore.  The event begins at 2 pm, and tickets are available at the Broadway Theatre.

For more information on the 30th anniversary event, or to access pre- or post-adoption services or support, please visit the Adoption Support Centre of Saskatchewan’s website at
