Committees

We're always accepting applications. To complement our existing members, more nurses, midwives and members of the public are needed.​​




 The role of committees​​​​​

​Committees play an important role in BCCNM’s work. They are typically comprised of both members of the public and registrants, who each serve one, two, or three year terms. Every January, about a third of all our committee members will reach the end of their terms in office. Terms ending will either trigger a process for reappointments or create committee vacancies. The number of committee vacancies available will vary from year to year.

There are ten committees at BCCNM. Three committees support the governance and oversight work of the Board. The other seven are regulatory committees, which have been established under the BCCNM bylaws to support the core programs that deliver on BCCNM's legislated mandate.

We acknowledge the rights and title of the First Nations on whose collective unceded territories encompass the land base colonially known as British Columbia. We give specific thanks to the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ speaking peoples the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations and the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh-ulh Sníchim speaking Peoples the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation), on whose unceded territories BCCNM’s office is located. We also give thanks for the medicines of these territories and recognize that laws, governance, and health systems tied to these lands and waters have existed here for over 9000 years.

We also acknowledge the unique and distinct rights, including rights to health and wellness, of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples from elsewhere in Canada who now live in British Columbia. As leaders in the settler health system, we acknowledge our responsibilities to these rights under international, national, and provincial law.​
