2018 BC Care Providers Annual Conference May 27-29 Whistler

Our 2018 conference is entitled Shift Happens! and will focus on the many prevalent shifts that are occurring in the continuing care sector. Inspiring and motivating workshops, high profile opening and closing key note speakers, engaging networking events, and a dynamic tradeshow make the BCCPA annual conference the premiere event to promote your goods and services.

Our 2017  40th Annual Conference had a record attendance with over 500 service providers, commercial members and exhibitors, and community service groups from across Canada and beyond. We anticipate this number to continue to grow as our first-class educational program, dynamic networking events, and the magnificent setting of Whistler make this conference one of the top events to attend in Canada. We have posted photo albums online from our 2017 conference here. You may access our 40th Annual Conference Look Back here, where you may view all of the presentations from the event.

We are expecting over 260 key decision makers to be in attendance at the 2018 Annual Conference  including owners, operators, senior management, and board directors from the continuing care sector. Our growing membership base includes over 300 residential care, assisted living, home care members from across British Columbia. Our members employ over 20,000 people and provide care for over 27,000 seniors each day.
