The United Church of Canada Archives holds the adoption and case files of residents of the former Toronto maternity home, Victor Home for Unwed Mothers.
These records hold highly private and confidential information. Out of respect of the sensitive nature of these records, the Archives will only provide non-identifying information to adult adopted persons, adoptive parents, birth parents, birth grandparents, birth siblings and birth aunts/uncles.
Identifying information will be made available to those who have successfully applied for adoption records from Service Ontario, and who can provide evidence to the Archives that no disclosure veto was registered by the birth parent or adopted adult.
The UCC Archives is committed to providing access while respecting the privacy of those whose lives were impacted by their experiences with Victor Home. For more information, please see our access to adoptions records policy.
