LINKS
POST-LEGAL ADOPTION SUPPORT

WINNIPEG MB CANADA





LINKS is a volunteer, non-profit organization, offering support for all members of the triad i.e. adoptee, birthparent, and adoptive parent by providing a free registry and a search service for a minimal fee. We also provide support for other relatives who have had family separated by adoption. They are unable to obtain any support or assistance from the Post Adoption Registry of Manitoba so we will include them in our free registry and also offer our search service.

Our goals are: Support - Education - Informing the public - Promoting legislative changes in attitudes, policies, and adoption legislation.

LINKS is kept on-going through the donated time, effort, love, and caring of its members.
