India is party to the Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption (Hague Convention Adoption).
FSGV Adoption Agency is licensed and accredited to work in India for relative adoptions.
Prospective Adoptive Parents (PAPs) must be related to the child as defined at Section 2 (52) of the JJ Act, 2015 (i.e. paternal uncle or aunt, or a maternal uncle or aunt, or paternal grandparent or maternal grandparent).
After your home study is approved we will assist you with the dossier preparation for India. Working with the BC Central Authority we will guide you through the adoption process to ensure that all legal requirements are met for both Canada and India. Family applies to Immigration. CARA on receiving dossier documents will assess the eligibility and further take up the matter with concerned State Government or authorized agency for verification of the documents following which it will issue NOC in the proposed case.
