What Is Sunrise?
Sunrise Family Services Society is an Accredited Body under the Hague Adoption Convention and a B.C. government-licensed adoption agency with offices located in Vancouver and Victoria. We deliver services throughout the province and can help women across Canada wishing to place their child for adoption in British Columbia.

Children in many countries throughout the world need homes and love. We are passionate about finding safe and loving homes for those children who would otherwise not have a family, and passionate about helping families realize their dreams of parenting.
Our mission at Sunrise is to build families through adoption.
We do this by:
Making the best interest of the child as our primary focus

Educating and preparing clients for adoption
Providing expert help with the complexities of paperwork and other processes necessary to complete an adoption
Providing support throughout the adoption process
Supporting the on-going needs of adoptive families
