What is the college?

The newly established College of Health and Care Professionals of BC (CHCPBC) unites the regulation of professional Audiologists, Dietitians, Hearing Instrument Practitioners, Occupational Therapists, Opticians, Optometrists, Physical Therapists, Psychologists, and Speech-Language Pathologists in British Columbia. This integration ensures these health professionals possess the competencies to deliver safe, ethical, and high-quality care while ensuring that every professional under their wing meets the highest standards of practice, ultimately benefiting the public they serve.

This amalgamation is a significant part of the Ministry of Health’s ongoing efforts to modernize BC’s health profession regulatory framework. By bringing these diverse health professions under one umbrella, CHCPBC aims to:

  • Centralize Information: Serve as a single point of contact for information about the regulated health professionals.
  • Enhance Public Protection: Ensure consistent regulation across various health professions, enhancing public safety and trust.
  • Boost Efficiency and Effectiveness: Provide greater access to resources and expertise, streamlining the regulatory process.

Starting June 28, 2024, all pertinent information and resources for professional applicants, registrants, and annual renewals have been centralized on the CHCPBC website. This site now serves as the primary resource and point of contact for the former College of Dietitians of BC, College of Occupational Therapists of BC, College of Opticians of BC, College of Optometrists of BC, College of Physical Therapists of BC, College of Psychologists of BC, and College of Speech and Hearing Health Professionals of BC.
