Up, Up and Away! #BCCPA2022 Annual Conference goes to new heights

To everyone who supported us and attended our events before and during the pandemic, we are extremely excited to bring you today’s news. The #BCCPA2022 45th Annual Conference — titled Up, Up and Away! — returns to the Fairmont Chateau Whistler on June 5 to 8th, 2022Yes, you read that correctly, we are getting back together in-person, with Handicare returning as the Title Sponsor for our 6th consecutive year!

“It is an absolute honour to be back as Title Sponsor for the #BCCPA2022 45th Annual Conference in Whistler, BC, which is sure to be the event of the year for B.C.’s continuing care sector,” says Handicare Western Canada Director of Sales Jared Bespalko. “The conference theme of Up, Up and Away perfectly describes what organizers promise will be a high energy and upbeat gathering — from the conference rooms, to the trade show floor and up to the peak of the mountain. Handicare will be front and centre, ready to introduce delegates to the future of safe client handling — including a look at the new products and services resulting from our recent acquisition that bring Handicare, Span America and Savaria together to serve you better.

“We are thrilled to be re-connecting with the delegates — seeing many old friends and greeting many new ones — at #BCCPA2022.”

The #BCCPA2022 45th Annual Conference “Up, Up & Away!” theme will focus on a positive vision for the seniors living and continuing care sector. Panels and speakers will discuss why the future should be faced with optimism and determination as governments, care providers and industry stakeholders work together to address the vulnerabilities exposed during the pandemic, and create a system focused on quality of life for clients, and those who care for them.

We have added a day to the conference program which will feature additional keynote speakers, panel discussions, concurrent workshops, and  deep dive sessions. The popular ‘Safety Den’ is back, and we are hosting our first ever World Café with the aim to challenge, inspire, and inform delegates. 

#BCCPA2022 is scheduling even more time for networking so delegates can reconnect after this long break between in-person events. Our exciting pre-conference favourites such as the annual Golf Tournament and Whistler Lunch Tour will return. The conference will kick off on Sunday evening with the Welcome BBQ on the beautiful rooftop Woodlands Terrace. 

Join us on Monday night as we go ‘Up, Up, and Away!’ for dinner and dancing on the top of Whistler Mountain at the Roundhouse. We will go back in time during our final evening on Tuesday for a 1920’s themed event at a speakeasy and casino! 

Importantly, delegates will be able to visit our trade show for opportunities to reconnect with vendors, build new relationships, and be introduced to new products and services. 

So mark your calendars for June 5-8, 2022 and prepare for an inspiring 4-day event in Whistler, BC that will help you take your work and career to new heights!
