Care aides and community health workers are also known as health care assistants or HCAs. They are frontline care providers in a variety of institutional and community settings including home support agencies and residential care facilities.
HCAs are an integral part of our health care system in British Columbia (BC), Canada. Patients, residents, clients, and their families are very dependent on an HCA's skills.
To be eligible to work as an HCA in any public health care setting in BC, applicants must be registered with the BC Care Aide & Community Health Worker Registry.
HCA Educators in BC
To improve the educational standards of health care assistant programs in British Columbia, the Registry will be recognizing and listing educational institutions that meet specific program standards. In the meantime, a list of all HCA programs in BC is available on this website.
Protecting the Public
The Registry serves and protects vulnerable patients, residents, and clients receiving care from health care assistants employed by publicly funded facilites. Employers are required to report in writing to the Registry every suspension or termination of an employee for alleged abuse.
