Ensuring Public Safety

By creating a Registry for all care aides and community health workers in BC, the Ministry of Health is establishing and improving standards of care. The Registry was also created to serve and protect vulnerable patients, residents, and clients receiving care from health care assistants in the province.

In addition to providing a database of registered care aides and community health workers, the Registry has created a standard for reporting and investigating complaints of alleged abuse of patients, residents, and clients by health care assistants.
