Steps to Fostering

  1. Complete the Foster Parent Questionnaire and Application and return it to the MCFD office. 
  2. A Resource Worker will contact you to arrange a personal intake interview at MCFD.  Please ensure your Questionnaire and Application has the best telephone number or email included with it so we may reach you. 
  3. Following the personal interview,  your application  may be sent to the HUB for screening. If you screen in, the HUB will invite you to the  Pre-Service Foster Parent Orientation Program called PRIDE.
  4. Once you have completed half of the PRIDE Pre-Service Training, a Resource Worker can start your SAFE home study.

*HUB The Hub is the centralised provincial office that processes foster parent application packages (e.g. references and police checks).
