Although TDH is a member of the Terre des Hommes International Federation, each member of Terre des hommes works independently. The family of TDH in Canada consists of three separate organizations: TDH Canada, the Foundation for children, TDH pour les enfants in Quebec and TDH Ontario.
Since its creation in 1967, the MISSION of TDH Canada is to relieve the child in need and to empower the community to sustain the growth of the child abroad and at home. The Foundation promotes policies that support the rights of the child and carry out projects that tangibly benefit children through direct humanitarian aid (projects in El Salvador, Honduras, Vietnam and Ukraine).
TDH pour les Enfants has worked in international adoption in Quebec since 1990 and is approved by the Minister of Health and Social services of Quebec to act in several countries: Honduras, Vietnam, Ukraine and Russia. Since the beginning of its activities in international adoption, the organization has effected more than 1000 adoptions.
TDH Ontario is a non-profit provincially incorporated organization, which facilitates international adoption for the residents of Ontario and other provinces (except Quebec). It is licensed by the Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services to work in Haiti, Vietnam, Ukraine, the USA, Russia and Honduras. Since the beginning of its activities in adoption in 2006, TDH Ontario has done more than 130 adoptions.
