We conduct regular inspections of licensed child care facilities. An inspection report is provided to the facility after each inspection that outlines their compliance with the requirements of the Community Care and Assisted Living Act and the Child Care Licensing Regulations.

During inspections, licensing officers look for items typically divided into ten broad categories:
- Physical facility, equipment and furnishings
- Policies and procedures
- Care and/or supervision
- Nutrition and food services
- Hygiene and communicable disease control
- Records and reporting
All contraventions identified during inspections are followed up by a VCH licensing officers to ensure ongoing compliance with the act and regulations.
