There are several regulations that govern care facilities operating from traditional single family dwellings in British Columbia. The Child Care Licensing Regulation and the Residential Care Licensing Regulation are both administered by the Community Care Licensing Branch of the British Columbia government. Facilities that provide residential care to three or more persons (e.g. group homes, long term care homes, residential treatment facilities) must have a valid community care facility license, whether they receive funding from a public agency or the client pays for the care directly. In order to meet the licensing requirements the facility must pass a fire safety inspection.
