Adoption agencies



BC's licensed agencies facilitate international, local infant, and direct placement adoptions. They offer a wide range of adoption services and experiences. The one you choose will become your partner as you move towards and through your adoption, helping you to navigate the legal, government, educational, and social components of the process.

You'll want to research and choose the agency that is the right fit for your family and your adoption goals. Agencies are licensed and regulated by BC's Director of Adoption and operate in accordance with BC's Adoption Act (1996) and adoption agency regulations.
