Sandra if I read it right, she wouldn't get any information that she is looking for.  Ie:  Mom and Dad biological.  Am I correct.

This is what it says under the heading - Getting information

Adopted adults and birth parents can apply for information from birth and adoption records, if the adoption was registered in Ontario.

This information is called post-adoption birth information. It may include identifying information, like the original name of an adopted adult or the name of a birth parent.

With post-adoption birth information, adopted adults may be able to find out what their original names were, as well as the names of their birth parents. Birth parents may learn the name their child was given after he or she was adopted.

Unless they choose the last option listed here
Protecting your privacy
Adopted adults and birth parents also have the option to protect the privacy of their post-adoption birth information. Adopted adults and birth parents can:
file a notice of contact preference to specify how they would like to be contacted
file a no contact notice if they do not want to be contacted, but are willing to have their identifying information released
file a disclosure veto if the adoption was finalized before September 1, 2008. This will prevent identifying post-adoption birth information from being released.
