Update: BC Rural Health Conference is cancelled
The Rural Coordination Centre of BC (RCCbc) regrets to announce that it is cancelling its 2020 BC Rural Health Conference (RHC). This is a disappointing but prudent decision as the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve rapidly.
The safety and well-being of our learners, our speakers, and in turn their families and the rural communities they serve is our top priority.
We look forward to seeing you next year in Penticton at RHC 2021 on May 28-30. We kindly ask that you mark these new dates in your calendar.
A full refund will be issued to all registered participants. Please note that due to the volume of refunds that we are processing it could take up to 12 weeks to receive your refund. We apologize for any inconvenience.
If you have booked any flight or hotel arrangements, please proceed with cancelling those bookings now.
Each airline company has information specifically related to fee waivers for travel changes due to COVID-19 impacts:

Thank you for your understanding – we hope that you and your communities stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you in Penticton next year.
