2023-2026 STRATEGIES & KEY INITIATIVES –
We’ve got our sights set
Looking toward the future, the BCACC will embark on multiple ongoing initiatives to support its four main strategies and prepare for the eventual separation of its association-related mandates from its public protection mandate.
Preparing for regulation
The BCACC will continue to prepare its members for regulation under the new Health Professions and Occupations Act (HPOA) through the continual sharing and interpretation of information as more details become available from the BC Ministry of Health, including support for licensing by the new Regulatory College of Allied Health and Care Professionals.
On the public protection front, the BCACC will continue to be an integral and contributing partner to the regulatory process for Clinical Counselling with the BC Ministry of Health. The association will leverage its 35 years of experience regulating Registered Clinical Counsellors in BC and work collaboratively with other provincial and national regulatory colleges to develop and enhance the regulatory building blocks required for the Clinical Counselling/Psychotherapy profession in BC.
The BCACC intends to remain THE premier association for mental health professionals in British Columbia. It will continue to enhance its public service and advocacy efforts, add new member benefits and leverage its new partnership with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) to become the Hub for Clinical Counselling/Psychotherapy in the province.
