Annual Legislative Luncheon Update: 

We hosted our first Annual Legislature Luncheon on March 11, 2014 at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Victoria, BC. This was an exclusive FREE event for BCCCA members, and a unique opportunity to establish industry relationships and extend our political reach in order to raise awareness and appreciation for the contribution of career colleges. The event was a success, with a strong attendance from Cabinet Ministers and MLA’s, including the honorable Minister Virk, who delivered a speech at the event.

Open Call For Good News Stories: 

Over the past few months, BCCCA has been involved in a strong push to increase its communications activities in an effort to showcase the industry and benefits of private post secondary education to key decision makers, stakeholders, government officials and the general public.  Our efforts in this regard have included scheduling organized meetings and events with government officials and regulators including the Ministry of Advanced Education, SABC, PCTIA and QAF, in addition to increased public responses to media stories, and presence on social media platforms, etc.
As part of this new direction we would like to publicly highlight the great news we know is happening almost every day within the industry and, more specifically within our membership.  In this regard we ask that you share with us your good news stories. Do you have a good news story worth publishing? Let us know!
