Our Mission

The Adoption Council of Canada (ACC) is the umbrella organization for adoption in Canada

Based in Ottawa, the ACC connects and supports domestic, private and international adoptees, birth families, and adoptive and kinship families.

Our services include adoption resources, referrals, education and support.

As a national non-profit organization that receives little government funding, the ACC is greatly dependent on the support from its national membership base, as well as donations from the general public.


The Adoption Council of Canada is seeking an Executive Director to start June 2018. Please click the job description link for further information.
