The Central Registry Office has an ongoing partnership with the Manitoba Post-Adoption Registry that has provided adoptees born and adopted in Manitoba the opportunity to undergo genealogical research. All research and identifying information gained through the partnership with the Manitoba Post-Adoption Registry is kept confidential and cannot be shared with the adoptee, however the research provided has allowed for numerous adoptees to be successfully reconnected to the Manitoba Métis Community and obtain their Citizenship Card.

If you are an adoptee that believes your biological family may be Métis and would like more information about connecting with Métis heritage, please contact the MMF Central Registry Office and we would be happy to assist you.
