About the Find Your Fit tour
The WorkBC Find Your Fit tour is visiting communities all across British Columbia! The tour is targeted to students (grades 5 - 10) to help them discover a range of in-demand careers in B.C. through fun and interactive activities.
A typical Find Your Fit tour event
Students will first visit career activity stations where they can take part in a hands-on activity related to a specific career. These activities will help students uncover their strengths and interests, giving them the knowledge they need to get started with their career planning. They’ll then move on to a labour market information station, where they can dig deeper into a career of their choice.

Find Your Fit tour event staff will be right there with students guiding them through all of the WorkBC career planning and labour market information available.
