Operating without a Licence: Residential Care/Substance Use/Mental Health


Licence-Not-Required (LNR) operators may provide care for only one or two persons not related to them by blood or marriage. If someone cares for more than the allowed number of persons outlined in the Community Care and Assisted Living Act, without a community care facility licence, they may be operating in contravention.

Health Authority Community Care Licensing Programs must investigate any complaint of an unlicensed facility that may be operating.

This page provides information regarding facilities which have been substantiated to be in contravention of the Community Care and Assisted Living Act, because they were caring for more than the allowed number of persons without a licence. These service providers are not monitored or regulated. As such, they may present an increased risk to the health and safety to those who receive services from them.

Please note: if the facility you were looking for is not listed, it may be due to one of the following:

  • There have been no complaints made about it;
  • They are not required to be licensed (only 1 or 2 persons receiving care);
  • They may be licensed (i.e. long term care or substance use facility): see Finding a Residential Care Facility to search for a licensed facility; or,
  • They may be registered as Assisted Living (seniors or MHSU): see About Assisted Living Residences for more information.

Please fill out all known information to begin your search.
