I'm in BC and trying to figure out HSing for K next year as well. One program in the Fraser Valley that has different ways of doing it helped me understand my options. It's a Christian online school, but even if you are not Christian I found the table helpful in understanding the different situations - homeschooling, distance learning...
Self Design is an unschooling based "school" that you can enroll through that appears to me to give the most flexibility, but I'm still trying to figure it all out. It seems like a person can get up to $1000, including $300-400 to pay for internet access, to pay for cirriculum, activities, etc. Most of the places I have looked into you tell the school what to buy for you and they do it (within reason). Self Design seems to put the money in portions on a prepaid visa, and what you buy has to fit in with the learning plan you design with them (but that plan can be amended whenever it needs to be).
If you are willing to have some oversight (a teacher or learning consultant and some standardized tests), the government will help pay for cirriculum and activities. If you want total independence, then you get it - BUT, you then have financial independence too.
ETA: A thread I started quite a while ago might be informative for you - I have been all over the map in ideas of how to educate, but a lot of people who have done Self Design chimed in (along with others who know about schooling in BC).
Oh, I should have said that if you register as a homeschooler you get a little money, $100ish?, but if you don't even want to register you don't have to. I am not sure if people who are registered as homeschoolers then are supposed to take the standardized tests...
