Meet BCCA's two new staff

Many of you will remember Tasha Nathanson and Bernice Paul from the AGM in June; Tasha is our Youth Program Manager and Bernice is our Marketing and Communications Manager. Though it's already been almost two months since they both joined the team (time sure flies!) we thought it would be fun to introduce them to our broader community of friends and members by having them interview each other. Here goes!


Caring Co-operatively

We're building a new model of seniors' care - elder care co-ops.

Caring Co-operatively, our Elder Care Project, is supported by the Government of Canada and the Vancouver Foundation. We're building a network of elder care co-ops across Canada - and can provide seed funding to get them started.
