Innovative Policy Development
With the input of our members we advocate realistic, practical and comprehensive solutions that will improve the quality of senior’s care in BC. Our regularly published white papers and policy documents outline many options and ideas to improve the sustainability of the continuing care sector, as well as to foster innovation. In collaboration with our members and other health care stakeholders, BCCPA develops and implements individual initiatives that support our strategic plan goals. These have focused on the development of an anti-psychotic drugs best practices guide and a Quality of Life Framework.

Your Voice in Government Decisions
BCCPA has made sure that your most important issues are front-and-centre with the provincial and federal governments. We meet regularly with Ministry of Health officials, MLAs and Members of Parliament from all parties, in addition to health authority representatives. We also submit a budget submission to the Minister of Finance on behalf of our members each year.
As the largest association representing the continuing care sector, we act as the industry voice with B.C. media in all regions of the province. Through news releases, opinion pieces and our regular newsletters we are helping to communicate your priorities.
When members are having issues with local health authorities or the B.C. government, BCCPA and its Board of Directors are there to provide support. Our members understand that there is strength in numbers and we make gains as a collective voice that individually would be very difficult to achieve.
