Joan Campbell Award

Enhancing access to the profession from underserved communities

In 2021, the inaugural Joan Campbell Award was created.


The Joan Campbell Award honors the impact of BCACC Past President Joan Campbell and her immense contributions to the Association and counselling profession as a whole.

The award is given annually in the amount of $1,000 and is funded from annual corporate and individual donations.

Covering BCACC application and membership fees, criminal record check, and insurance for the first year of membership, the award will facilitate enhanced access to the counselling profession from under-served communities and support eligible candidates experiencing financial hardship who would otherwise not be able to join the profession.

More than one award may be given each year depending on the amount of money raised.
