  • Date is incorrect ""Ontario becomes the first province to make it legal for same-sex couples to adopt. British Columbia, Alberta and Nova Scotia follow suit, also allowing adoption by same-sex couples. Other provinces are looking into the issue." (https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/timeline-same-sex-rights-in-canada-1.1147516) This is not for all of Canada, but only certain provinces"
