NBAF is an incorporated not-for-profit organization. NBAF was founded in March 2002 and was the first foundation of its kind in Canada. NBAF is funded through donations, support from the Province of New Brunswick, and in-kind support from individuals and corporations who share the Foundation’s vision.

The Late Honourable Erminie J. Cohen, C.M

In 2007, the Honourable Erminie J. Cohen Legacy Fund for Adoption was established to ensure the long term sustainability of the New Brunswick Adoption Foundation and in turn ensure the message of the Foundation lives on into the future. The unfortunate reality is that even though many homes have been found there are more and more children entering the system each year. Your donation to the The Honourable Erminie J. Cohen Legacy Fund for Adoption will help to ensure this important voice for children continues.
