Mum’s The Word

Synopsis

Mum’s The Word is an interactive documentary on the history and legacy of forced adoptions in Canada. In the post-war period, approximately 350,000 unwed mothers were coerced by churches and social working institutions to give their children up for adoption. Our project aims to harness the power of storytelling and the lived experiences of mothers and adoptees to share their stories and teach Canadians about this injustice.
