About the health navigators

The Trans Care BC team includes health navigators and administrative support staff. The team works alongside service providers, agencies and communities to help people find care and support close to home, wherever possible. 

We do not provide direct clinical care, care management or counselling services. However, we are happy to provide information about how to access services in your area that we know about. The health navigation team is not aware of all care options in the province; we welcome you to share resources you have found useful so we can improve our ability to support others.

Trans Care BC’s services are free of charge.
