Adopt from B.C. Foster Care

Adoption is about a lasting commitment to make a difference in a child's life. We are looking for families who can learn and grow with our kids so that they develop to their full potential.  Do you have what it takes to provide a loving, stable and supportive home for a child who needs extra support?

Who Can Apply to Adopt in B.C.?

Our adoptive parents come from diverse backgrounds, with strong a commitment to make a difference in a young person's life. You don't need to be the perfect parent to adopt and marital status and sexual orientation don't matter. 

  • B.C. resident (for a minimum of 6 months)
  • 19 years of age or older
  • Any one adult or two adults jointly may apply

Every effort is made to find an adoptive family who best meets the specific needs of a child and can provide them with a permanent secure and loving home.
