Yes. But this is not something you should do on your own. I suggest you connect with a lawyer to assist you with this.

Yes it is possible but you should speak to a lawyer first. Perhaps try contacting the Society for Children and Youth of BC (1-877-462-0037 or https://www.scyofbc.org/child-youth-legal-centre/) to see what free legal help may be available for you. You can also call the Kids Help Phone at 1-800-668-6868 to talk about what is going on. If you are in immediate danger call 911. Stay safe and well
