Over the years, the BCAPA membership has grown and flourished and the members have benefited from an Association who listens and moves forward with direction from all of its members. The BCAPA is dedicated to bringing the best information and workshops to its members, and encourages networking between the members in the form of local chapter meetings and our Continuing Education workshops.
Professional and Associate members of the BCAPA are eligible to apply for membership in the British Columbia Alliance of Aromatherapy (BCAOA). In March 2003, under the Society Act of British Columbia, the members of the BCAOA were granted the right to use the Provincial Occupational Title “Registered Aromatherapist” (RA) by the British Columbia Registrar of Companies. Since that time the BCAOA has also obtained the following Canada wide Registered Trademarks which all BCAOA members in good standing are entitled to use:
Essential Oil Therapist – EOT®; EOT® and RA®
The BCAPA wants to know its members on a personal level, and the Board of Directors is always open to new ideas and inspiration from the membership.
What Our Members Have to Say:
"I graduated from a BCAOA approved aromatherapy course 4 years ago. Since then I am trying to use the essential oils as much as possible, but I can do only so much by myself. Our local chapter meeting is a fun and interesting way to learn more about the oils. It also feels great to connect with other therapists."
