The Department of Family Services is responsible for processing adoptions. Adoptions are governed by Nunavut, Canadian and, if applicable, international laws. The Government of Nunavut does not process Custom Adoptions. We are working to create an alternative family care program, and to provide training for staff and Custom Adoption Commissioners.
For help and information, contact the Community Social Services Worker in your community.
Or contact the Adoption Specialist.
