Joining BCASLPA

If you are a graduate student in audiology or speech-language pathology, then you are eligible to join BCASLPA through our joint membership with SAC. As a student-member, you will have the opportunity to connect with members in your area and drive change and innovation in the professions. There are also a number of financial and networking benefits such as reduced travel insurance and lower conference fees.

How do BCASLPA, SAC and CSHHPBC link together?

BCASLPA is the professional association supporting and representing speech-language pathologists and audiologists in BC, whereas SAC is our national association. SAC also has certifications for both professions. In order to work in BC, SLPs and audiologists need to be registered with CSHHPBC.

Further information about becoming an audiologist is available in our Careers section.

Mentorship Program

The Mentorship Matters program matches students with mentors based on geographical and learning needs. Supporting new graduates (within the last five years), BCASLPA’s program builds skills, knowledge and connections.
