The BC Ministry of Health has confirmed in a Ministerial Order the name of the new multi-profession health regulatory college that will be created when CSHBC and six other existing colleges legally amalgamate on June 28, 2024: College of Health and Care Professionals of British Columbia.

The Ministerial Order confirms that, effective June 28, 2024, the Speech and Hearing Health Professionals Regulation is amended to include the following: “The name of the college responsible for carrying out the objects of the Act in respect of audiology, hearing instrument dispensing and speech-language pathology is “College of Health and Care Professionals of British Columbia”.”

This is the same name that the Ministry of Health proposed for the amalgamated college in 2023. The Ministry held a consultation period to obtain public feedback on the name, with a deadline of January 12, 2024.

The Ministry also confirmed the name of another new multi-profession health regulatory college that will be created when four other existing colleges legally amalgamate on June 28, 2024: College of Complementary Health Professionals of British Columbia.
