Open Board Forum

Every year, Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) hosts three Open Board Forums to provide an opportunity for community members to hear directly from and engage with the organization’s senior leaders.

The next Open Board Forum will focus on Indigenous health care topics and be conducted as a telephone town hall on June 28, 2023. Register for this telephone town hall and learn more.

During this session, VCH senior leaders and subject matter experts will provide updates on public health, health services and programs and open up a conversation around culturally safe care for Indigenous Peoples. Participants will also have opportunities to share questions and comments directly with the VCH Board of Directors and senior leadership.

The last Open Board Forum was focused on Richmond City Centre and was held on February 22, 2023. To access a recording of this session and others, please see the links below under past presentations.
