MONTREAL, July 5, 2018  – Media representatives are invited to attend the International Conference on Adoption Research 6 (ICAR6) that will be held from July 8 to 12, 2018 at Mont-Royal Center, located at 2200 Mansfield Street, Montreal.

This conference will be the opportunity to learn about the latest scientific discoveries in the field of local, international and customary adoption, in order to improve practices with adoptees and their families, as well as to optimize public adoption policies in Quebec and Canada.
