Other Family Members of an Adoptee

Manitoba Post-Adoption Services is not legislated to provide services to extended family members of adoptees. Services are only legislated to extend to children of adoptees when the adoptee is deceased and not to additional descendants such as grandchildren.

If you believe that you have Indigenous heritage, you may apply directly to Indigenous Services Canada, the Manitoba Métis Federation (MMF) or to your local Metis Federation. Manitoba Post-Adoption Services will only respond to requests for information received directly from these organizations in order to assist them in determining a descendant of an adoptee’s eligibility.

If you believe that your situation is unique, contact Manitoba Post-Adoption Services.
