Here for CHCs
Everyone in BC deserves access to personalized and community-driven health and social services. Community Health Centres (CHCs) are designed to provide services and address wellness gaps. As champions of the CHC model, BCACHC exists to engage and support CHCs as we advocate together for this unique model of care.
What is a CHC?
The Community Health Centre model has existed in BC for over 50 years. Learn more about this unique model of delivering health and wellness services.

What issues are CHCs facing?
CHCs are much more powerful when we come together and call for change with one voice. Take a closer look at our key priorities.
BCACHC represents a strong network of communities, organizations, and partners with a shared passion for advancing CHC model. Explore our latest updates for news about our collaborative projects and stories from the BCACHC team.

This has been an unprecedented year for all of us as we grapple with COVID and the myriad ways it has impacted our lives. As we look back to the year we have had and ahead at the year before us, we want to take a moment to thank all of you for the awe-inspiring work you continue to engage in as you support the health and well-being of your communities.
Members, It goes without saying that this has been a unprecedented year for all of us as we grapple with COVID and the myriad ways it has impacted our lives. On behalf of the BCACHC Board, we again thank all of you for the incredible work you continue to do support the health and well-being of your communities.
Thank you to everyone for your efforts during this unprecedented time; both in terms of providing critical health services in your communities, and as individuals doing your part slow the transmission of COVID-19. Events like these always have a disproportionate effect on vulnerable Canadians, the very people that CHCs serve, highlighting the important of community based health services.
Hello CHCs across BC. Your BCACHC Board has been busy this Fall connecting to our members across the province and working with the Ministry of Health to increase support for current and future CHCs. As I mentioned in our last newsletter, the Ministry has committed to 3 to 5 new CHCs or enhancement of current CHCs, each year.
Our members drive change
While we are spread across the province, BCACHC member CHCs are all linked by a shared commitment to the value of health equity and by a shared desire to embody the five principles of the CHC model.
