Adoption Awards

Each year, we recognize individuals and organizations for their significant contributions to the adoption and permanency community in BC. They help us make a difference in the lives of waiting children and youth, and all adoptive families. They are some of our biggest advocates!

Our 2020 Adoption Award recipients were recognized at our virtual Annual General Meeting on September 23, 2020.

To make a nomination for an AFABC Adoption Award, first please carefully read the nomination guidelines.

We will be accepting nominations for the 2021 Adoption Awards beginning in the spring of 2021.



Recognize an individual or organization that has made a difference.


Past award recipients

This year's recipients have made equal parental benefits, helped parents travel to meet the newest members of their family, allowed us to develop programs, and volunteered their time. These are our adoption heroes.
