You’ll want to buy your tickets early to ensure you don’t miss out on this great networking and dialogue opportunity.”
During the recent BCCPA conference held last month, Dr. Darryl Plecas, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Health for Seniors, provided the welcome address to a crowd of almost 500 conference delegates and industry stakeholders. In his remarks, Dr. Plecas outlined for delegates his government’s priorities when it comes to the provision of seniors support services.
