Looking for adopted brother

I am looking for my brother who I just found out existed. My brother was born in March 1957 - I do not have exact day in March. I am assuming Calgary since I was born there (in 1964) and my parents married there. As birth sibling I received non-identifying info. from the Albert government. My mother passed away in 2002 and I am not able to receive any identifying info. unless I am a parent of the adopted child. I found out that the adoptive parents were both 31 and lived in an urban area and already had a 7 month son. Adoptive Mother was Scottish and had a Grade 10 + nursing aide diploma and adoptive Father was Scottish/Welsh and had a Grade 8 education and was a construction foreman. My brother was described as a handsome boy with brown hair, brown eyes and a medium complexion. Good natured. I live in Surrey, BC (suburb of Vancouver). I really want to find my brother and let him know that I exist as well.
