The upcoming Care to Chat, titled Debunking the Myths and Misconceptions of BC’s Continuing Care Sector, is just over a month away and tickets are going fast!

Mario Canseco of Insights West is surveying 800 British Columbians on how they view seniors care in the province.

Earlier this year, BCCPA commissioned high-profile pollster Mario Canseco, VP of Public Affairs, Insights West, to find out what British Columbians think about seniors care. We asked 800+ British Columbians for their perspective regarding a number of common myths and misconceptions about the continuing care sector.

“This poll should either confirm or debunk whether public opinion is in line with many of the common misconceptions of our sector,” says Daniel Fontaine, CEO, BCCPA. “This is the first time we’ve ever conducted this sort of comprehensive public opinion survey. I have no doubt the results will be of great interest to everyone working in the sector and beyond.”

“In spite of the enormous amount of media coverage that health issues continue to enjoy, there has been very little publicly available research on the expectations of British Columbians when it comes to continuing care, “says Canseco. “Our goal is to take an honest look at the issue, from the standpoint of those who are experiencing, directly or indirectly, as well as conduct a review of the misconceptions that residents may have when they look at their future care needs.”

Join Canseco and our industry blue-ribbon panel of experts on April 27th as we reveal for the first time the results and provide an in-depth analysis of this exclusive poll. Colin Hansen, Former Deputy Premier and Health Minister is set to moderate this exciting event.

“Seniors make up a bigger percentage of BC’s population than the rest of Canada so it will be interesting to see what the public’s views of the continuing care sector is,” says Hansen. “In one way or another most British Columbians have had an interaction with the continuing care system; whether as a care provider, a family member or friend of someone in care, or even as someone in care themselves. With so many first-hand experiences this is sure to make for an intriguing discussion.”
