AGM 2021 Call for Nominations Package

AGM 2021 Call for Nominations Package

 BCFPA will be holding the annual election for executive officer positions on our Board of Directors at our Annual General Meeting on September 25, 2021, at Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre. 

This year, there are 2 positions for election on the BCFFPA Board of Directors Executive Committee: 

  • Vice President 
  • Treasurer 

Each position has a two-year term. Nominations for each position must be received by the BCFFPA Provincial office by July 16, 2021, for distribution to the membership for our mail voting process. 

 The Bylaws regarding eligibility to become an Officer of the Federation, state the following:

  • Paid in full member as of January 31st of the current year. 
  • Must be present at the AGM unless excused by the President for extraordinary reasons. 
  • Nominations from the floor will not be accepted. 
  • Candidates and nominations for these officer positions shall be vetted by the Nominating Committee and are chosen for their knowledge and expertise in relation to these positions. 
  • If only one nominee’s name is submitted for a posted position and they meet all eligibility criteria as stated in the Bylaws, the individual is considered to be elected by acclamation. 
  •  The successful candidates will be elected through a combination of mail-in votes and the votes of those attending the Annual General Meeting. 
  • Associate Members who have been elected to hold positions on the Federation Board of Directors shall have full voting privileges during their term of office. 
  • Any candidate for these posted positions must have held a BCFFPA membership in good standing for at least three years immediately previous to running. 
  • Candidates running for these positions must have served for at least one year in the previous three years on a Local or Macro-regional council, or on the BCFPA Provincial Board of Directors. 
  • Nominees require a nomination form duly moved and seconded by two BCFFFPA members in good standing (ie. current membership as of January 31st of the present year).

MCFD Emergency Information for Foster Parents Impacted by the BC Wildfires

MCFD Emergency Information for Foster Parents Impacted by the BC Wildfires

As part of the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) preparedness activities, we want to ensure all Foster Parents and Contracted Agency Care Providers update their information and know how to contact the Ministry during emergency events.

With the approaching flood and wildfire season, there is a potential that your community may be impacted and you may be required to evacuate to a safe location. To support our Foster Parents and Contracted Agency Care Providers during emergency events, MCFD has designated a contact number that is available and staffed around the clock, seven days a week.

Call 1-800-663-9122 as soon as it is safe to do so, if:

  • You have been evacuated as a result of a flood or a wildfire.
  • You have been evacuated or are in the process of evacuating and require support to seek alternative accommodation.

Additionally, to prepare in advance of the upcoming flood and wildfire season, we ask that all care providers ensure MCFD has their latest contact information, including mobile phone numbers. If you need to update your information, please call 1-800-663-9122. MCFD social workers will ensure updates are reflected in our records so that contact with the care providers for children in care can continue despite care provider location.

If you have been evacuated from your home community and require support, please contact the local MCFD office in your new area. All MCFD offices in the new area are available to provide support to caregivers.

For additional information about flooding or wildfires please refer to:

Phone: 1.888.663.5555.

Thank you for your continued commitment to children in care.
