Application for Designation as a Health Profession in British Columbia under the Health Professions Act
The BC Association of Clinical Counsellors, together with several other organizations, filed a proposal with the provincial government several years ago to be regulated under the Health Professions Act (HPA), a key piece of provincial legislation. The goal is the proclamation of a new College of Counselling Therapists, under the Act.
A short version of the history of this endeavor can be found at: Chronology of the Designation of Counselling Therapists . Any breaking news about this topic will be posted there as it comes in to BCACC.
