Thank-you for taking the time to complete this survey.  Our hope is to have an updated and accurate understanding of the experience of Ontario residents who are interested in adoption. 

This survey is confidential.  At no point will you be asked to provide identifying information other than the first 3 digits of your postal code. Results of this survey will be made available through the Adoption Council of Ontario newsletter and on an ongoing basis, on the ACO website ( 

Information will be collected, reported on and potentially used by partner agencies with a goal of building capacity to support Ontario families to navigate our adoption system, and to improve Ontario's ability to ensure that all children who are waiting for a family will have timely permanency through adoption,  kinship placement or customary care when they are not able to live with birth parents. 

This survey will take about 20 minutes to complete.
