Component 4 - Health Services

Large and growing, this component of the BCGEU represents members who provide health care in the community as governments move such services "closer to home".

Community health caregivers work in home support, drug and alcohol treatment centres, adult day care, detox and emergency shelters, women's clinics, services to seniors, mental health group homes, regional health units and other community-based health services. The 200 employers in the sector include both non-profit societies and corporations, all funded by the provincial government. The employers are represented in bargaining by the Health Employers' Association of B.C.

Our members who provide nursing care, personal care, housekeeping, building maintenance, laundry, activities, dietary, security and rehabilitation services at Riverview Hospital, Forensic Psychiatric Hospital, Maples Adolescent Treatment Centre, Youth Forensic Psychiatric Services, Victory Hill Residential School, the Lodge at Broadmead, and Oak Bay Lodge.
