You Can Help Shape the Future of Health

REACH BC connects volunteers like you with health researchers across British Columbia

COVID-19 Update:  REACH BC is committed to helping connect British Columbians to clinical research opportunities. At this time we will be posting research opportunities that you can participate in online or by phone, and any COVID-19 related research. 

We’ve heard you: British Columbians are interested in health research, but don’t know how to learn more, or get involved. At the same time, researchers often struggle to find enough volunteers for their research. 

REACH BC connects you—the public—with researchers in BC to foster a stronger and healthier future for our province.

Participate in Research

Researchers around the province are looking for volunteers like you to participate in clinical trials and studies. Sign up to be matched with research opportunities.

What is REACH BC?

REACH BC is a joint initiative of the health authorities and university partners in BC. Anyone can sign up to connect with researchers, or to learn more about research opportunities throughout BC. It was created to connect you with health research across our province.

REACH BC is a unique resource that can be used not only by interested volunteers and researchers, but for medical professionals and health organizations across the province.

What is a Research Opportunity?

Research Opportunities take various forms. As a volunteer you can participate in a research study such as a Clinical Trial— observations that involve an intervention or new treatment—or become a Patient Partner and get involved in health research governance, help set research priorities, or work as part of a team to conduct research.
