Canada: Bill to modernize Alberta adoption laws gets all-party support
Edmonton Sun – May 29, 2017
It’s currently illegal in Alberta to post online or advertise in any way that one wants to adopt a child. That includes posts on social media or online crowd-funding sites. In this province, adoption rates have fallen by 25 per cent since 2008, even as wait lists creep steadily higher. Yet B.C. – which allows online advertising – has seen an increase.
