Considering adopting a child from India?
Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA) is India’s Central Authority dealing with inter-country adoptions in accordance with the provisions of the Hague Convention on Inter-country Adoption, 1993, ratified by Government of India in 2003.
India is party to the Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption (Hague Convention Adoption). Visit India’s Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA) Website.
After your home study is approved we will assist you with the dossier preparation for India. Working with the country’s facilitator and the BC Central Authority (BC Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD)) we will guide you through the adoption process to ensure that all legal requirements are met for both Canada and India.
