432. Applications relating to the adoption of a minor child that are supported by general consent, by special consent if the child is the subject of a report, or by a declaration of eligibility for adoption are notified to the director of youth protection having jurisdiction in the child’s place of residence or, if the child is domiciled outside Québec, in the adopter’s place of domicile. In the latter case, the application is also notified to the Minister of Health and Social Services. The director or the Minister may intervene as of right as regards such applications.
If a notice of the applications must be notified to a party or to an interested person, it is notified by the director. The notice must ensure that the adopters remain anonymous to the father and mother or the tutor and vice versa, and must state the subject matter of the application, the grounds on which the application is based and the conclusions sought.
