What is BCAHA?
We are volunteer-based membership organizations formed to support the needs of hospitals, healthcare centres and health services, thereby promoting the health and welfare of communities within BC. The BC Association of Healthcare Auxiliaries (BCAHA) was established in 1945 to promote education, leadership, effective communication, and high standards of performance as key factors in member Auxiliaries’ success.

Helping Healthcare the Auxiliary Way
Auxiliary volunteers make a difference every day all across our province. Whether at a gift shop, thrift store, or in a youth program or residential care facility, our helping hands and smiles are here for you.
Currently, BCAHA’s member auxiliaries in BC represent more than 4,810 adult volunteers and 256 youth volunteers. We keep our members knowledgeable with timely information and resource material through our website, a regular newsletter and face-to-face interaction at the local and provincial levels, including annual provincial and regional annual general meetings and conferences.
