Licensing Officers inspect, license and monitor over 1,000 licensed child care facilities in the Island Health region.
They conduct regular routine inspections and at each inspection they leave an inspection report outlining the licensees’ compliance with the requirements of the Community Care and Assisted Living Act, Child Care Licensing Regulations and the Director of Licensing Standards of Practice.
For more information about an inspection visit the Inspection and Investigation Reports website.
Individuals providing care to more than two persons, not related to them are required to be licensed, and must provide care in a licensed community care facility.
