The Canadian Council of Natural Mothers supports open access to personal information in adoption records and access to the original registration of live birth for both natural mothers and adult adopted persons.

We speak from, and for, our own viewpoint. Others have often appropriated the voice of natural mothers and we do not wish to do the same for other natural relatives.
