The BC Care Providers Association is pleased to announce we are taking our member-only workshops on the road! Presented by the Justice Institute of BC, the workshop titled, Human Relations: Creating an Ethical Culture in Residential Care, will provide care providers with human relations training to promote an ethical culture in care homes. A maximum of 20 participants will be allowed to register on a first-come first-served basis.

As part of a pilot project, the BCCPA held four sold out workshops at our training centre in Burnaby. Just over 80 members participated in these sessions. The pilot season featured five diverse topics ranging from labour and employment law to infection control and prevention.

“We received an incredible response to our pilot workshops,” says Hart Dashevsky, Director of Membership Services and Sponsorships. “The goal of these workshops is to provide our members with exclusive sector-specific training. We hope to be in the position to make a great announcement about future workshops later this summer.”

The workshop will take place on Thursday, July 9th in Nanaimo.  As space is limited in this workshop, members are encouraged to register as soon as possible.
