All of our practical support services are free to single parents and becoming a member has never been easier. To complete an intake or renewal, we do require proof of single parent status. You must complete your membership intake or renewal in-person, at the Centre, with one of our dedicated volunteers or staff. There is no appointment necessary, and usually only takes about 5 to 10 minutes. *Note that 1Up is temporarily located, 3 days per week, in the Centennial United Church at 612 David Street (entrance off of David Street).
To complete your intake, please bring with you the most recent document indicating your marital status.
There are three methods by which a parent can provide proof of single parent status:
1. A recent document showing your current Marital Status* | Documents which should show current marital status include:
|· Divorce or Separation Agreement
· Custody Agreement
· GST Credit & HSTC Notice
· CCB Notice (Canada Child Benefit)
|· Court Order
· Lease or Tenancy Agreement
· BC Housing Application Form
· Universal Child Care Benefit Notice
*Note that a tax return Notice of Assessment does NOT show an individual’s current marital status.
2. A completed Confirmation of Single Parent Status form
