The Health Employers Association of BC (HEABC) represents a diverse group of 247 publicly funded health care employers. This includes denominational, proprietary and non-profit affiliate organizations, as well as the province’s six health authorities. Our members range in size from organizations with fewer than 25 employees to large, regional health authorities with thousands of employees.
HEABC represents our members in negotiating five major provincial agreements, covering more than 120,000 full, part-time and casual unionized health care employees, or approximately 100,000 full-time equivalents (FTEs). These agreements cover nurses, health science professionals, physician residents, and support workers in both facilities and community settings.
