Who We Are

Parent Finders Ottawa is an Ottawa-based, nonprofit adoption support group. We are managed entirely by volunteers and are the longest running adoption support group in Canada having been founded in 1976.

Our target population is made up of adult adoptees, birth parents and other birth relatives including siblings, as well as fostered adults and adoptive parents. For many years, most of our clients were adoptees. But in the last 20 years, the number of birth parents has increased, particularly birth fathers who have not often been involved in adoption searches in the past.

The adoption community comes from all walks of life and is representative of the population at large. Although we are based in Ottawa, we draw from all over the country and around the world.
