Component 8 - Community Health Services

As a Component 8 Community Health Services member, you are covered by the Community Health Sub-Sector Collective Agreement.

BCGEU is structured to have 12 regions divided amongst 11 Components.

Community Health became their own component in the beginning of 2011 and we represent over 9000 members across BC. This includes members employed in the health authorities, home support agencies, non-direct government and others in the private sector.

Who are we:
Workers in this sector work in three main areas:

1) About half of the sector are Community Health Workers. These are care givers who travel throughout our communities to provide essential care including medical and support services. This allows many of our most vulnerable seniors the choice to remain in their own home. They also assist other who are unable to care for themselves.

2) Some workers in this sector provide services to those who suffer from mental health and addiction issues.

3) Others work out of community based facilities providing administrative health services and other medical services such as arranging immunization clinics and preserving the integrity of vaccines.
