BC's health regulators form a society for enhanced patient safety

British Columbia’s 26 regulated health professions, governed by 22 colleges under the Health Professions Act, and one under the Social Workers Act, have incorporated under the Society Act to become the Health Profession Regulators of BC Society.

The Health Profession Regulators of BC Society is an incorporated, not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to promote effective communication and collaboration between members on matters relating to regulation, quality assurance, administration and education.

The depth and breadth of expertise and experience amongst society members will be shared through joint task forces and working groups, leading to improvements for everyone.

In September 2013, the society launched “Our Purpose, Your Safety,” a campaign designed to raise public awareness about the role colleges play in patient safety, and to shine a spotlight on the importance of seeing a regulated health professional.
