Estheticians and Spa Professionals Association of BC (E-SPABC) has made the difficult decision to dissolve the association, beginning March 1, 2016. We have been operating for more than five years with a committed group of volunteers. Over that time, these women and men have worked very hard to lobby and persuade government and training organizations to implement program training standards and re-regulate the industry.

We are passionate about this industry, and we were hopeful that E-SPABC could, with its members, make some strides to reinstate the provincial licensing that was removed in 2003. We have made very little progress despite our prolonged efforts. We encourage our members and partners to continue this work and to seek re-regulation and program training standards to restore the industry’s standards.

It has taken us many months and multiple discussions to agree to move forward in this way. We appreciate our many members and partners who have supported us over these past years.

Thank you for your continued support over the years.
