About Us

The Adoption Centre of British Columbia

The Adoption Centre of British Columbia is a government-licensed, British Columbia adoption agency providing adoption services throughout British Columbia. We are part of a non-profit society, KCR Community Resources, in the Family and Adoption Services department. We are designated and approved as a competent authority under the Hague Convention on International Adoptions.

We are a wrap-around service, offering birth parents and prospective adoptive parents expertise, support, information and assistance through every step of their adoption journey. Our experienced and compassionate team of social workers will help you make informed decisions about your options. While our offices are located in Kelowna, we serve families throughout British Columbia.

We are a trusted organization that has been serving families since the beginning of the British Columbia adoption agency system in 1996. We specialise in a select number of programs that we deliver with expertise and confidence. This purposeful focus ensures we are viable as an agency, and wholly there for our families.

Call us to book your free consultation, either via phone or in person, and we can also send you our information package to help you get started.
