Register Now!

Last year’s Annual Conference, which celebrated BCCPA’s 40th anniversary, sold out with over 500 service providers, commercial delegates and exhibitors in attendance.

The 2018 conference theme Shift Happens! will zoom in on the global shift in the model of care from acute to home and community.

Shift Happens! memorabilia is expected to be a popular seller at the BC Care Wear store

“The 2017 conference set the bar quite high, but we’re confident this year’s event will be just as impressive,” says BCCPA CEO Daniel Fontaine. “We’re excited to host delegates from all over the world for three action-packed days of engaging workshops, networking events, and a dynamic trade show at the continuing care sector’s premiere event.”

By exploring best practices and new models of care and technology, the 41st Annual Conference will highlight ways to support the shift in the continuing care sector, and explore how a culture of innovation through new technologies and person-centered care can preserve quality of services, access to services and equity of health outcomes.

Shirlee Sharkey, President and CEO of Saint Elizabeth, will be the opening keynote speaker at the event, and motivational speaker Jody Urquhart will deliver the closing keynote.

Over 260 key decision-makers, including owners, operators, senior management and board directors from the continuing care sector, are expected to attend the event.
