What is the Central Admissions Service?

Well-prepared parents create well-prepared families. MCCSS responds to feedback from adoptive families who have identified a barrier to learning about adoption and accessing services. The Central Adoption Admissions Service will provide this information, options and preparation.
“The goal of adoption is to help ensure that every child is part of a loving, nurturing, secure and eternal family, while fulfilling the lifelong dream of raising a child,” said Jane McKenna, Associate Minister for Children and the Status of Women. “That’s why our government is investing an additional $1.2 million a year to help improve the adoption system, including a new centralized adoption admissions service. This service will offer adoption information and navigational support to help expectant parents looking to start or grow their families, and provide long-term supports for adoptive parents.
Adoption has many joys and, with loss at its center, it also has challenges. When parents are informed and prepared, they can handle challenges and are stronger as a family unit.
“It is important to find the right family for a child/adolescent. It takes time and can be complicated,” says Diane Mathes, Executive Director of the COA. “The Centralized Adoption Admissions Service will provide support and guidance on how to navigate the public adoption system by Ontario.”
