Opening a Licensed Child Care Facility
Child care is an essential service that contributes significantly to the social and economic well-being of our community.
To open a licensed child care service in West Vancouver you must obtain two licences:
- Provincial Community Care Facilities Licence (CCFL) issued by Vancouver Coastal Health
- West Vancouver Business Licence
The Community Care Facilities Licensing Office and the District's Bylaw & Licensing Services Department work together to align the two licensing processes and support child care providers.
Learn more about the application and approval process for applying and receiving both licenses!
