TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:

WHEREAS current legislation does not provide access to post-adoption birth information (identifying information) to next of kin if an adult adopted person or natural/birth parent is deceased;

WHEREAS this barrier to accessing post-adoption birth information separates immediate family members and prohibits the children of deceased adopted people from gaining knowledge of their identity and possible Indigenous heritage;

WE THE UNDERSIGNED petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to extend access to post-adoption birth information (identifying information) to next of kin, and/or extended next of kin, if a adult adopted person or a natural/birth parent is deceased.
