Advertising & Sponsorships Opportunities

Annual Conference Sponsorships

The BC Care Providers hosts an annual 3-day conference of its members in Whistler each year. In May, 2016, over 450 delegates and exhibitors used this as a great opportunity to network, share best practices, and hear from an array of interesting speakers. Over 270 of the delegates represent the owners, executives, managers, and staff of our care home and home support members!

Our 40th Annual Conference: “Providing 40 Years of C.A.R.E: Collaboration, Achievement, Research and Excellence” will be held at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler May 28th – 31st, 2017. The RFP for Conference Title Sponsor is now closed. We are pleased to partner with Angel Accessibility again in 2017 as our Title Sponsor.

Our Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Conference Sponsorship packages are now sold out, however many exciting sponsorship opportunities remain for the pre-conference BCCPA Annual Golf Tournament. Click here for more information.
