Our name and contact information are changing

In 2019, the BC Family Maintenance Agency (BCFMA) was established as a Crown agency and became responsible for the delivery of the Family Maintenance Enforcement Program (FMEP). Due to ongoing challenges throughout the pandemic, we were unable to fully transition our support services to reflect our new name. We are now ready to implement this change.

Effective September 28, 2023, all client correspondence and communications will be updated to BCFMA. Our new toll-free phone number is 1-866-557-2427. Our FMEP website will be moved to www.bcfma.ca.

BCFMA Celebrates 35 Years Helping Families

The BC Family Maintenance Agency (BCFMA) is pleased to celebrate 35 years of supporting B.C. families by providing a diverse range of services to help families achieve their best outcomes and future for their children.

BCFMA works to connect citizens to services such as justice, financial, social support and poverty reduction.

Since 1988, almost 336,000 parents have benefitted from BCFMA free service. In that time, BCFMA has managed more than 179,000 cases and distributed more than $5 billion to B.C. families.

In the upcoming months, BCFMA will release a mobile app and launch a new pilot program that will focus on reducing barriers that under-served and Indigenous parents may experience when accessing BCFMA.

New Direct Deposit Option for Payors

If BCFMA has a payment to return to a payor, the payor can now sign up for direct deposit to have the payment deposited into their bank account.

The advantages of direct deposit:

  • Secure – there is no risk that a payment will be lost, stolen or damaged in the mail.
  • Confidential – there is no cheque for someone to see how much money the payor got.
  • Convenient – it eliminates the need for the payor to deposit the cheque.

To sign up for direct deposit, sign into My Account to find the direct deposit option; or call our office.
