“The Collaborative is a fantastic forum to address staffing shortages in BC’s continuing care sector because it brings together stakeholders from all corners of the sector, to identify solutions to recruit more qualified workers to our sector, and how to keep the workers that we have happy and healthy at work,” says BCCPA HHR Analyst Lara Croll.

The event will feature a keynote talk by Hon. Adrian Dix, Minister of Health, and presentations from representatives from health authorities, unions, government, care providers, worker safety experts and academics.

“We’re glad to have such a varied group of speakers at the Collaborative,” says BCCPA CEO Daniel Fontaine. “We have no doubt the dialogue will lead to innovative and compelling solutions to strengthen seniors’ care, and meet the needs of our aging population.”
