As part of the BCPVPA’s responsibility to support the safety and well-being of our staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to assist in preventing the spread of the virus, we have closed our office and it will remain closed until May 31. We will assess the possible continuation of the closure based upon recommendations from our local government and health authorities, and will keep our Members advised.
