AEP - Registration

This is an online course, if you would prefer to attend a face to face AEP, please contact your social worker. Not all regions offer face to face AEP.


Please note: If you live in a region that does not yet use the Adopt BC Kids portal, please enter your social worker's information in the Adopt BC Kids contact field.

To register, you must:

  • For MCFD clients, know the email contact for the Adopt BC Kids service hub or your social worker
  • Complete a separate registration for your partner
  • Have a separate email address from your partner's
  • Register in your region
  • If you are adopting through the Ministry and plan to access block funding, you must have the approval of your social worker to proceed

Major upgrades take place to the online environment every summer. This means that no course will be offered between August 1 and September 15, 2017.
