“This has been a great partnership between the BC Care Providers Association and the Canadian College of Health Leaders,” says Daniel Fontaine, CEO for the BCCPA. “Working together we’ve been able to attract a capacity crowd to hear about the fiscal challenges facing BC’s continuing care sector as well as how we can address them while maintaining a high standard of quality.”
