How to become a Foster Parent

Have you decided to foster a child? The next step is your application.  Please request an application package at the social program reception desk - 2nd floor, Jan Stirling Building.  Please note:  The letter requesting that  the RCMP waive the fees for the criminal record check must be signed by a YHSSA staff.  This must be done before taking the letter to the detachment. As well, print three (3) copies of the reference form as three references are required. You do not need to wait for your references to return their forms to you in order to submit your application. Your references can submit, in person or mail their forms separately.

The completed forms are to be dropped off in person to the 2nd floor of the Jan Stirling Building, attention to the Foster & Adoptions Social Worker.
