BCABEAP (BCA Alberta Assistance Program)

Effective May 1, 2015 the BCA of Alberta has begun the administration of the BCABEAP (Boilermaker Contractors’ of Alberta Employee Assistance Program).  Individuals working under the IBB Local 146 / BCA of Alberta collective agreement were formerly participants in the CLR-A CEFAP.  To ensure a seamless transition, the eligibility requirements and elements of the BCABEAP are unchanged.

BCABEAP is funded by Boilermaker contractor remittances on a per hour worked basis.
