Big Thank You to our BCCPA Sponsors in 2016!

Over the course of 2016, the BCCPA undertook a number of key events and initiatives that were only made possible through the generous support of our corporate sponsors. We want to take a moment to recognize them for partnering with us this year and helping to make this year such a big success!

A special shout out goes to Rexall Health Solutions for once again stepping up and becoming the Title Sponsor for our popular Care to Chat speaker series. In particular, we want to thank Norman Hertzman and Ron Villanueva for seeing the value in these important sessions which have touched upon so many interesting topics over the last four years!

Our other sponsors include:

  • Medical Pharmacies – Gold
  • Justice Institute of BC – Silver
  • Masters of Health Leadership and Policy – UBC – Silver

Continuing Care Collaborative

In September, we held the inaugural Continuing Care Collaborative. Over 140 people from across British Columbia gathered at the Wosk Centre for Dialogue in Vancouver to discuss the future of seniors care. This event would not have been possible without the generous support of McKesson Canada who agreed to sponsor both the working session and reception.  A special thanks to George Attar, Anthony Leong, & Alain Guez for helping to bring the Continuing Care Collaborative to life!

We encourage all of our members to consider using the products and services of our sponsors and commercial members first! To obtain a complete listing of those commercial members, you simply need to log in to the Member365 system and search by category.
