External review to examine intercountry adoption

External review to examine intercountry adoption

May 18, 2021 at 8:28 am  BC, News, Politics

The ministry is inviting an external review of how intercountry adoptions are provided in B.C., as well as the process of how adoption agencies are licensed and monitored.

A request for proposals (RFP) has been posted on the Province’s procurement site, BC Bid. A contract is expected to be in place by mid-July, with the review taking place over 18 months.

In B.C., international adoption services are provided exclusively through adoption agencies, which are licensed by the ministry. These agencies are independent, non-profit organizations responsible for their own funding, operating decisions and the success of their organizations.

The provincial director of adoption monitors the activities of the agencies through a three-year licensing process that includes consulting with them on complex cases, reviewing closed files and investigating complaints.

Currently, International adoption services are available to B.C. families through the Adoption Centre of B.C. and Sunrise Family Services Society.
