Our Members

Our long-term care membership currently represents the majority of non-government operators in B.C. Read below to learn some of the reasons why in the last 5 years our membership has increased by over 25 per cent.

Ten Reasons Why Long-Term Care Providers Should Join BCCPA

  1. BCCPA has a strong 16-member Board of Directors who come from across the province. The majority are senior leaders from within the long-term care sector;
  2. BCCPA conducts regular roundtables and consultation sessions with our members to assist in our advocacy. We hold province-wide CEO listening tours to hear from care providers;
  3. BCCPA has been the leading organization that advocates for increased funding for more care staff and capital infrastructure from the provincial government;
  4. BCCPA is a member of the Canadian Association for Long-Term Care, which advocates for national strategies to support our sector.
  5. BCCPA helped to create SafeCare BC, an organization funded by WorkSafeBC to train seniors’ care workers, in order to reduce workplace injuries;
  6. We regularly release influential policy papers, and submit an annual budget submission to the Ministry of Finance;
  7. We host the largest seniors’ care conference in western Canada. This premier event attracts global speakers who address a number of key topics of concern to long-term care operators — BCCPA members receive special rates;
  8. We have multiple committees made up of members and board directors that are always looking for new volunteers. Topics include policy, member engagement and quality of life issues;
  9. When issues arise that affect the long-term care sector, we take these concerns directly to organizations such as Health Employers Association of BC, Ministry of Labour, Ministry of Health, and WorkSafeBC;
  10. We proactively respond to the concerns of long-term care providers through unparalleled media relations and communications efforts.
