Adoption homestudies and homestudy waiting lists

The adoption homestudies data shows the number of homestudies completed during the fiscal year inclusive of those withdrawn, rejected and approved, conducted by a children's aid society on adoptive applicants.

Waitlist Reduction Initiative

In 2011, the government implemented a three-year strategy to reduce waitlists for adoption homestudies. This homestudy waiting list dataset covers all three years of this strategy.

Data shows:

  • number of families waiting to complete a homestudy
  • number of homestudies projected to be completed (based on the waitlist reported to the Ministry of Child and Youth Services)
  • number of homestudies completed with funding from the initiative

Data only covers the studies completed with funding under the Structured Analysis Family Evaluation Waitlist Reduction Initiative.
