The provincial government we elect on October 24, 2020 will play an important role in shaping BC’s pandemic, opioid crisis responses as well as health system policy. Every candidate needs to hear nurses' voices on the issues and understand how valuable the nursing perspective is in bringing forward positive, solutions-based approaches to health and public policy.

BC Provincial Election Issues Summary


Election Toolkit Resources

In the lead-up to the October 24, 2020 Provincial Election, NNPBC is pleased to provide a series of tools that will help nurses hold meaningful discussion with candidates from all parties. The Association itself remains non-partisan, but hopes that nurses across B.C. will take this opportunity to ask important questions of candidates and remind our political leadership that nurses can be a valued and knowledgeable source of information for health system planning and transformation.

Nurses see patients every single day and strive to help them navigate our complex health care system in a manageable and compassionate way. Whether your goal is to raise candidates awareness of the issues that are impacting the nursing profession, make a balanced decision about your own vote, or help influence the direction of our new government, NNPBC is keen to provide materials and information that will help you decide how you want to experience the 2020 Provincial Election.

Please remind yourself of key BC Provincial Election Issues or access any of the Toolkit materials linked to the the right of this text to learn how you can get involved. We will keep an eye on public forums to be held by social distance and where possible will list as many public events as we can.

We welcome submissions and suggestions that are related to our work. If you have an idea or request that is not reflected on our Election pages, please email us at to share your thoughts.
