Crown Wardship

When a child has been made a Crown Ward under the Child and Family Services Act, then a Children’s Aid Society is required by law to make all reasonable efforts to secure an adoption placement, if adoption planning is in the child’s best interests.

A Crown Wardship order is made by the courts on determination that in the child’s best interests he or she can no longer live with his or her birth parents, and that a better and less restrictive option (such as placing the child with relatives) is not available. Under Crown Wardship, the province accepts all rights and responsibilities for the child.

A Crown Ward cannot be placed in an adoptive home until any outstanding access order made under child protection proceedings has been terminated by court order, the time permitted for appeal of the Crown Wardship order has fully expired and any appeal of that order has concluded with a decision that has left the order intact.

The consent of any child 7 years of age or older is required.
