Stop staffing crisis and brain drain in health science professions

Health science professionals and concerned British Columbians can make a difference if we speak up. Please use this form to write a letter explaining your concerns in the box below or use the pre-written text we've provided as an example.

Health science professionals are crucial in every step of your health care. We’re concerned that the ongoing crisis in recruitment and retention for our professions is seriously undermining our ability to continue providing quality care in BC. We’ve taken our concerns to the bargaining table. Instead of working with us, health employers have dragged their feet.

Help us tell the government and health employers to take our concerns seriously, and help us protect BC’s health care system.
