Protect Our Province BC is a grassroots group of physicians, nurses, health scientists, health policy specialists and community advocates. We are working together to help people in BC stay safe by sharing accurate information about the COVID-19 pandemic in BC, and advocating for evidence-based policies. Our ultimate goal is to end this pandemic.
PoP BC formed out of a growing concern about the health policies being implemented in British Columbia. These policies are often in conflict with what is supported by evidence from around the world. A very important part of PoP BC’s work is to make the growing body of credible evidence on COVID-19 easy to access and understand. We believe that it is important for people in BC to be able to stay up-to-date with the latest available science so they can make the best decisions for themselves and their families.
Members of PoP BC are not paid for this work and provide their time to this cause without remuneration or political agenda. The top goal is to keep people in BC safe.
The pandemic will end faster if everyone contributes. Because of that, PoP BC does not work alone. We collaborate with other community-based organizations and experts that are aligned with our goals of preventing COVID-19 transmission and infection, and ending the pandemic.
Steering Committee members do not receive remuneration and serve on a volunteer basis. Some members are not publicly identified due to concerns of reprisals by employers.
Expert Advisors do not necessarily endorse the statements, activities, or content produced by POP-BC. Expert Advisors have agreed, on a volunteer basis, to serve in an advisory capacity to POP-BC. We express our gratitude.
Our goal is to keep BC safe during the COVID-19 pandemic by limiting the spread of COVID-19 to prevent short-term and long-term illness and death for all BC people.
