Breaking news! There is some exciting new legislation in the works in Ontario. Member of Provincial Parliament with the NDP political party, Cheri Dinovo, has drafted new legislation to make birth registration equal for same-sex parents. This legislation would mean that parents could put their names on the birth certificate at the time of birth, rather than having to adopt their own children.
This will likely not be done in time to affect us directly, but the meaning behind this legislation affects all families with same-sex parents. Very exciting.
