Health Care Assistant (HCA) Day Proclamation 2020

October 18, 2020 marks Health Care Assistant Day in BC. Join us in celebrating and recognizing all Health Care Assistants in your community this year, to show our appreciation for their hard work and dedication to our health care system.

Health Care Assistants make a tremendous difference in our lives and this annual event has been recognized by unions, educators and employers. Health Care Assistant Day was first officially proclaimed in 2011 by the BC Provincial Government.

Health Care Assistants may have many different job titles including Community Health Worker, Residential Care Aide, Home Support Worker, Long-Term Care Aide, Home Health Aide, Continuing Care Assistant, and Personal Care Aide.

The one thing all Health Care Assistants in BC have in common is that they provide frontline personal care and assistance services to vulnerable patients, clients and residents. 

Please take the time on Health Care Assistant Day (October 18, 2020) to recognize and thank Health Care Assistants across British Columbia!
