My grandmother was adopted and we already know her mothers family, can i get the records, because i think it names her father. Can i do this or do i need her to do it?

Unfortunately at this time neither of you can do it. Adoption records are currently sealed under Ontario law. There are efforts to change this decision, keep an eye on our Important Announcements page for updates.

2009 Update: Ontario adoption records are now 'open'. The adoptee or their next-of-kin (proof required) can apply for a copy of the adoption record. See Access to Adoption Records Act.
