With delegate registration now officially closed, the BC Care Providers Association (BCCPA) is pleased to announce a record number of delegates for this year’s annual conference. We also have a record number of exhibitors planning to participate in our commercial expo.

“With well over 440 delegates, speakers, and industry stakeholders in attendance, this event gathers a plurality of interests and perspectives into a single location,” says Aly Devji, Chair, BCCPA Conference Committee. “It will offer participants a platform to exchange ideas, discover novel opportunities, network with colleagues, and broaden their knowledge all while working towards the shared goal of offering outstanding quality seniors care.”

This year’s conference has attracted over 60 blue-ribbon speakers through our Request for Speakers process. This includes 24 stimulating and though-provoking panel and plenary discussions. The event will kick off on Sunday May 24th with the Annual BCCPA Golf Tournament sponsored by the law firm Roper Greyell.  The conference runs over three days and includes two networking evening receptions. Be sure to visit the largest exhibitor showcase of its kind in Canada focusing solely on the vibrant and ever-changing continuing care sector.

“Themed ‘Sustainability Through Innovation’, this conference is an opportunity to look into the future of care over the next few decades,” says Devji. “With an aging population and increasing levels of acuity, it is more important than ever to look at sustainable and innovative solutions to better meet the needs of seniors.”

“This 38th Annual Conference marks the culminations of a year filled with new initiatives, strengthened partnerships, and significant progress for care providers,” says Dave Cheperdak, President, BCCPA. “We hope you enjoy the three days and find that it is a professionally and personally rejuvenating experience that will support you and your organization in our common goal of providing excellence in care for BC’s seniors.”
