Through the Employment Program of BC (EPBC), a wide range of services and supports are available to help BC job seekers find and maintain employment and improve employment readiness. [en Français]
EPBC services are delivered through WorkBC Centres (ESC) and fall into two categories: general services and supplemental services. Clients may also be eligible for financial supports. Some program services have specific eligibility requirements.
These are services delivered at the storefront WorkBC ESC (self-serve services, apprentice services, case management, and case managed services).
These services may be delivered at the storefront ESC, through other qualified service providers at other locations or training institutes, depending on the type of service being delivered (Training services, Self-Employment services, and specialized assessment services).
These supports assist eligible clients in financial need with the costs of basic expenses required for Program participation, job search or starting jobs. In some cases, employed individuals at significant risk of losing employment due to a disability, may be eligible for financial supports to enable employment retention.
