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.
