People Eligible for Employment Services

Looking for work, applying for jobs, and interviewing for opportunities can be stressful, and it can be difficult to know where to turn for help and resources. WorkBC Centres are here to help you get started and will work with you to achieve long-term employment.

Are you legally allowed to work in British Columbia and meet one of the following:
  • Unemployed?
  • Have a disability?

Are you employed or self-employed in a job that:

  • Is unlikely to continue long-term and has irregular hours of work (e.g., casual work, on-call work)?
  • Has unreliable pay (e.g., piecework, commission) that does not provide enough income to support you or your family?

Employment Services offers many options that can support you to find and maintain a job and to improve your employment readiness.

Find Your Employment Service Provider will help you identify what employment services you are eligible to receive.

Employers

Employers who are:

  • Hiring staff;
  • Building an inclusive team;
  • Improving workplace accessibility; or
  • Experiencing labour market issues in your community.

Did you know? Employers can access WorkBC Assistive Technology Services, which is funded by the B.C. government to help persons with disabilities and their employers assess and acquire technology to address disability-related barriers to employment.

Self-Serve Resources for Employers
