What we represent

How can we help you realize your potential?

Elevate and standardize the beauty industry

We love our industry! But we don’t love the lack of regulation. BCBA develops standards through professional certifications, Codes of Practice, Industry Guidelines, and by making continued education accessible to our members. 

Be recognized as a qualified beauty professional

BCBA members make up a trusted network of barbers in Western Canada, searchable to potential employers and customers.  As a member, you’re in good company — our network stands out from the untrained workforce operating in our industry. 

Continue your education & professional development

Anyone who knows us, knows we’re obsessed with education! Ongoing education keeps us up-to-date and boosts quality and professionalism in our industry. BCBA offers Certification of Qualification exams, BeautySafe Certification, advanced skills training, and classes in business and marketing. As a member, you’ll get discounts and often free access to classes.

Connect with and learn from your community

It’s hard to work alone — so don’t! BCBA is a community of passionate, committed beauty professionals, which is truly the best resource of all. We’ll keep you up to date on events, jobs, and networking opportunities. We’ve also researched and tested the best insurance plans, health plans, customer service and business tools (with discounts for our members, of course) so you can focus on the job you love.
