Free text The author comments on adoption practice in Canada today while analysing how it inscribes itself in its cultural concepts of parenting and the impact of adoption on the identity of the adoptee because of the special, exclusive type of filiation it creates which substitutes biological ties by adoptive ones; the role of legislation and the State in adoption; the interaction between prospective adoptive parents and the intermediaries in adoption. Chapter on intercountry adoption and the role of accredited agencies, as well as the points of view of adoption groups representing the parents position.
