Prince Edward Island Adoption Search
The adoption records start in 1947 with Child Welfare and Government Agency involvement but there were adoptions as early as the 1930s.
In 1993 the law changed regarding adoption disclosure in Prince Edward Island. The new adoption disclosure rules are very liberal and provide adoptees, adoptive parents acting on behalf of their children and birth family members with the following services:
- Non-identifying background information to all three parties.
- A reciprocal search register to both adoptees and birth family members
- An active search service on behalf of adult adoptees for birth mothers and birth fathers (if identified on records) and birth siblings if known.
There are no fees for health history and/or background information. There is a fee for the Reciprocal Search Register - if a match is made a fee of $70.00 besides $35.00 if both parties apply.
If you want an active service the fee is $150.00.
