British Columbia Chapter

Set between the province of Alberta and the Pacific Ocean, British Columbia is Canada’s most westerly province. BC entered the confederation in 1871, Victoria is our capital city and we have a population of approximately 4 million people.   There is a rich first nation’s art and history to discover. Vancouver, although not our capital is a multicultural, cosmopolitan city with something for everyone.

There are 6 health Authorities that make up the BC chapter:

The British Columbia Chapter of CACCN  supports continuing education for its members. We have worked to support our members in providing the best possible care of critically ill patients in BC.

So, that's who the BC chapter of the CACCN represents, but who the heck are we really? What do we do? and what do we want?

Check out our June 2016 Membership report.  Like all good reports, it has lots of pictures.
