It was a packed room for the fourth BC Care Providers Association’s member-exclusive workshop. The workshop, which was co-hosted by the Justice Institute of BC (JIBC), kicked off with an introduction to the JIBC Advanced Specialty Certificate in Community Care Licensing. While the certificate is geared towards persons who wish to become Community Care Licensing Officers, workshop attendees were offered insight into the licensing process from Deborah Richards, Program Director and Nathan Wright, Program Manager at JIBC. Attendees were briefed on how understanding the program can help improve their own systems and processes in support of maintaining licensure for their facility.

“The Justice Institute of BC is proud to support BC Care Provider Association members seeking to maintain the highest standards of care for their residents by offering the Advanced Specialty Certificate in Community Care Licensing,” says Wright. “The applied nature of our courses, such as Collaborative Conflict Resolution, support residential care providers in their efforts to create environments that ensure the health, safety and dignity of persons in care.”
This was the fourth installment in a series of pilot workshops hosted by the BCCPA. With such a terrific response, the BCCPA is pleased to announce it will be offering a series of additional workshops over the coming months.
“With this being completely registered within 24 hours, it’s clear our new workshop series has quickly become very popular with our members,” says Hart Dashevsky, Director of Membership and Sponsorships, BCCPA. “We are pleased to partner with the BC Centre for Elder Advocacy and Support for our next work shop on what care providers should know about financial literacy and advance planning for residents.”
