Proud Members

In March 2003, under the Society Act of British Columbia, the members of the BCAOA were granted the right to use the Provincial Occupational Title “Registered Aromatherapist” (RA) by the British Columbia Registrar of Companies.  Since that time the BCAOA has also obtained the following Canada wide Registered Trademarks which all BCAOA members in good standing are entitled to use:

Registered Aromatherapist – RA®
Essential Oil Therapist –EOT®


Over the years, the BCAOA membership has grown and flourished, allowing us to have an increasingly strong voice when dealing with government representatives. Our members have benefited from an Association that values input from all its members and strives to move forward by truly hearing what our members want from their Association and implementing these ideas. The BCAOA is dedicated to bringing the best speakers and informative workshops to our members, and we encourage networking and communication amongst our members through local chapter meetings and our Continuing Education workshops.
