Minutes of the Welfare Institutions Licensing Board

  • GR-2857
  • Series
  • 1938-1972

Minutes of the Welfare Institutions Licensing Board (1938-66), later the Community Care Facilities Licensing Board (1972). Also includes Regulations of 1940 and explanatory notes on the Welfare Institutions Licensing Act of 1937 (volume 7). The Welfare Institutions Licensing Board was established within the Department of the Provincial Secretary in 1938 to carry out the provisions of the Act Respecting Private Welfare Institutions. The Act came into existence in 1937 as a result of Commissioner Bird's recommendations upon his inquiry into the Homes for the Friendless in that year. The intention of the Act was to protect infants, unmarried mothers, and handicapped or aged adults from exploitation in private boarding homes or similar institutions. In 1950, responsibility for the administration of the Welfare Institutions Licensing Act was transferred from the Hospital Services Division of the B.C. Hospital Insurance Service to the Social Welfare Branch. In 1969 the Welfare Institutions Act was superseded by the Community Care Facilities Licensing Act. In 19701971, responsibility for the Act was returned to the Health Branch, within the Department of Health Services and Hospital Insurance. This unit includes minutes of the board 1938-1966 and 1972. Volume 7 also includes regulations, ca 1940, and notes explaining the legislation (1937). The minutes include lists of facilities which were licensed, addresses and capacity, and other information.

Records of the Chief Inspector of Welfare Institutions

  • GR-2864
  • Series
  • 1938-1969

Records of the Chief Inspector of Welfare Institutions. Subject files relating to boarding home care for discharged patients of the mental hospitals, various committees studying day care and welfare of the aged, courses in preschool education, essays regarding the history of the program, annual reports of the Inspector and treasury slips detailing licenses to various institutions. The Department of the Provincial Secretary was responsible for health and welfare programs between 1907 and 1946, including the administration of the Act Respecting Private Welfare Institutions, passed in 1937. The Inspection of Welfare Institutions remained under the supervision of the Department of the Provincial Secretary until 1950, when it was transferred to the Department of Health and Welfare (Social Welfare Branch). In 1969, when the Community Care Facilities Licensing Act replaced the Act Respecting Private Welfare Institutions, this responsibility was transferred to the Ministry of Health. These files give a tremendous amount of information relating to the development of community care facilities licensing and the activities of persons who were interested in the welfare of dependent groups. GR-2864 documents early work in placing discharged mental hospital patients into boarding homes, the development of standards for care, correspondence with the Community Chest and Council of Vancouver, several essays on the history of pre-school education in Vancouver and the administration of welfare institutions in British Columbia. The annual reports are useful because they contain more information than the published reports.
