FACTBC is the Federation of Associations for Counselling Therapists in BC. Evolved from the Task Group for Counsellor Regulation in B.C. (formed in 1997), FACTBC works to advance the case for regulation under the Health Professions Act (HPA).

The goal of regulation under the HPA is to reduce the risk of harm to the public.

ARCH – Association of Registered Clinical Hypnotherapists
