Call for Speakers: Applications are now open for the 47th Annual Conference

BC Care Providers Association (BCCPA) is proud to invite you to apply to speak at our 47th Annual Conference from May 26 to 28, 2024, in beautiful Whistler, British Columbia.

Centered around the theme “Come Together,” the conference recognizes the BC Seniors Living Association coming together with the BCCPA through a special resolution approved at their Annual General Meeting in September.

The conference will explore issues impacting all aspects of the seniors’ living, wellness, and care sector. With a forward-looking perspective, the event will delve into subjects that hold significance for the sector in the years and decades ahead. Additionally, a notable emphasis will be placed on fostering collaborative partnerships across all tiers of government and across the sector. The goal of the program is for delegates to come away from the conference inspired and with concrete, easy to implement take-away ideas.

We are looking for passionate speakers presenting new ideas to an audience of owners and operators, senior leaders, general managers, administrators, and other stakeholders from the long-term care, assisted living, independent living, and home health sectors. We encourage submissions from across Canada, as well as internationally, for consideration in the conference program.

This year, we are inviting speakers to apply for three different presentation formats, each with it’s own requirements.
