In regard to international adoption, some countries may prevent persons who identify as being LGBTQ2S from adopting a child because it is against their laws, culture or beliefs. You could face discrimination from national authorities responsible for adoption. You should carefully research which countries have laws in place to allow LGBTQ2S persons to adopt and work closely with your provincial or territorial adoption central authority to ensure the adoption process complies with both Canada’s and the other country’s legislation and procedures.
