BC Homelearning and Policies
BC Home Learners' Association (BCHLA, formerly CHEA) is a registered non-profit society formed in 1987 to promote and protect homeschooling freedoms in British Columbia. BCHLA is dedicated to the protection of the family's freedom to educate children at home with minimal government intervention. The organization represents BC home educators from many walks of life with differing religious and philosophical backgrounds. If you are interested in preserving your option to register-only (under Sections 12 and 13 of the School Act), then please consider a membership in the BCHLA (by donation).
